Sky News: Stashed guns found in Brockley

On Friday night, we received Twitter alerts that a large team of police, including forensic officers, were inspecting bins in St Peter's Court, Wickham Road and had discovered some guns.

Sky News was following the operation and reports that it follows a tip-off from a local resident, which Sky received directly and passed to the police. Thirty officers from the Met and Cheshire police (who are providing overflow support) were involved in the search and found five guns including a revolver, two antique pistols and two flare guns. It's suggested the guns had been stored by gang members "in anticipation of further riots."

One 18 year old man was arrested on "suspicion of possession of firearms," after someone was seen throwing what looked like gun cartridges out of a window.
