Published 15/11/2012 | 07:33
Teams are targeting gangs involved in drug dealing, trafficking and prostitution in Scotland Yard's biggest ever operation to specifically focus on criminals' finances. Cash sniffer dogs are being used to uncover hidden money and a series of arrests are expected to be made. Around 200 financial experts will try to calculate how much money has been made from illegal activities, so it can be confiscated, and there will also be moves to freeze suspects' assets so they cannot be hidden abroad.
