Units from the Norfolk and Suffolk Firearms Operations Unit recovered weapons, believed to be Airsoft pistols and rifles, from a vehicle they pulled over in Felaw Street at around 7.35pm.

They were originally called to Cardinal Park at around 7.18pm and managed to stop the vehicle nearby.

They later arrested a man in connection with the incident.

He was being held in custody overnight on suspicion of possessing a firearm in a public place, but was released this morning under investigation.
