Police have welcomed lengthy prison terms imposed on five men after an inquiry which led to the recovery of four illegal firearms, including a machine gun.

Khavi Chadee, Bradley Buchanan, Dyrell Nestor, David Komolafe and Adewole Adetunji, all from London, were given sentences ranging from six to nine years by a judge at Snaresbrook Crown Court. All five men either admitted or were found guilty of conspiracy to supply a prohibited weapon after an intelligence-led police operation launched in 2011.

"There is no doubt these were dangerous individuals who had every intention of selling the firearms on to other criminals to commit serious offences, and I'm pleased they are now behind bars''

"The sentencing sends out a clear message to those involved in such crimes that we will do everything we can to pursue them and bring them to justice''
