A source said: “The street was swarming with police. Both uniformed and CID officers were there for ages.”

Police refused to confirm the reason for the raid but Sherlock has been strongly linked to organised crime for more than a decade.

He was a close associate of Daniel gang enforcer Kevin “Gerbil” Carroll, who was murdered in 2010, and has been shot at five times.

Sherlock, 34, survived an attempt on his life last September.
