During their patrols in the the area yesterday (Wednesday, March 25), the team stopped a vehicle in the Lidl car park in Mansfield Road and recovered a bladed garden hoe (pictured).

A 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a bladed article in connection with the incident.

The team also gave advice to a number of people on staying home, in line with government guidance on the coronavirus, to help save lives – after seeing some people milling about.
