More than 100 people, including London's 'untouchables' have now been charged by the Met Police as part of "Operation Eternal" following the cracking of a Criminal Messaging App "EncroChat".

Encrochat is an encrypted, military-grade communications network used by 60,000 people worldwide, largely for criminal purposes, and has proved to be impenetrable until now. The EncroChat website has already vanished but is still visible on the Wayback Machine, complete with assurances of watertight security! Messages intercepted on the platform included lists of drug prices, discussions about taking revenge on competing gangs, arrangements for money laundering and "ways of enforcing drug debts".

The force says it is "the most significant operation" it has ever launched against alleged serious and organised crime and forms part of the National Crime Agency's (NCA) Operation Venetic.

The Met Police said it was their "most significant operation to date," calling it a "game-changer" which will bring in results and arrests for months to come.

Now, 113 of those arrested in London have been named and charged, with 34 belonging to residences within south east London.

Here is the full list of those charged as released by the Met.
