Today in Bournemouth there was a gathering of some of the few remaining pilots who played a critical role in the Allied success after D-Day. Richard Slee reports.
A 55-year-old man from Bournemouth has been arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm after an incident in the town centre.
Officers detained him at an address near Fordingbridge in Hampshire and recovered two air weapons.
It came after they held a separate man in Bournemouth town centre earlier in the day after receiving reports that someone had a firearm. They released him when they realised he was not involved.
“This was a fast-moving incident and I would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while this incident was ongoing and praise the professionalism of officers involved, including colleagues from Hampshire who assisted with the arrest of the man.”
Detectives are appealing for witnesses following a robbery in Bournemouth.
Emergency services were called to Holdenhurst Road just after 4am this morning.
The victim, a local man aged in his 20s, was walking from the Lansdowne toward St Paul's roundabout. As he got to the entrance of the underpass he was approached by two men.
The offenders spoke to the victim, who was on the phone to his friend, and threatened him before he was knocked unconscious. He was found by a passing motorist lying on the pavement.
The victim was taken to hospital for treatment to injuries to his face and a fractured cheekbone. His mobile phone and wallet were stolen during the incident.
The offenders are described as white, aged in their early 20s, around five feet ten inches tall, of medium build, clean shaven. The first offender had short hair and the second had longer hair in a quiff style at the front.
No arrests have been made.
“This was a violent and unprovoked incident which has left the victim with serious facial injuries.
“I am appealing to anyone who was in the Holdenhurst Road area at the relevant time and saw the incident to please contact Dorset Police.”
