A family were left angry and frightened after armed police with dogs mistakenly raided their home in Birmingham, West Midlands as part of an investigation into a County Lines drugs network. The officers bashed down the door of the house in the early hours of the morning and arrested two brothers at gunpoint while other family members, including children, were screaming and crying. After a short time, the police realised they were at the wrong house. A police spokesperson later said: "We have apologised to the men and other residents at the address and appreciate this would have been a distressing experience. We will thoroughly debrief the incident to understand exactly what happened and take steps to ensure it’s not repeated."  One of the detained men said: "Police need to get the basics right, this was a playground schoolboy error. Someone could have got hurt or worse killed.”
