MALE CAUGHT IN POSSESSION OF IMITATION FIREARM AND SWORD

A 25 year old male has been caught in possession of a sword and BB gun in College Street, Long Eaton.

The male, one Daniel Walford, was carrying the items in a suitcase and wearing dark clothing, including gloves and a hoodie, when officers stopped him.

After admitting possession of an offensive weapon and replica firearm, Walford was jailed for 14 months.

The offence comes months after Walford was given a suspended sentence for possession of a knife during a visit to the Royal Derby Hospital.
