Police have recovered two loaded handguns and live ammunition after raiding a house in Tipton.

Officers found the firearms at 2.45am this morning (19 May) at a property on Victoria Road.

One weapon was found under floorboards in the bathroom; the other was hidden under a bed.

A 35-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of firearms and ammunition, as well as possession of Class A drugs, after a wrap of what is believed to be heroin was also found.

Each of these loaded weapons represents lives potentially being saved and the West Midlands is a safer place tonight now that they’re off the streets.
