NCA and Sussex Police officers are working together at the location, which is cordoned off, as the investigation continues.

As a result of this operation two firearms have been recovered and they will now be the subject of analysis.

"Our investigation is ongoing, and we are working very closely with our partners at Sussex Police as it progresses."
