Weapons and drugs have been recovered from a house during a police raid.

A hand gun and 12 rounds of ammunition were found by officers from Bedfordshire Police at the property in Biggleswade on Tuesday, at about 06:00 GMT.

Class A drugs, believed to be heroin, were also found in a tub of washing powder, police said.

A man in his 20s was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm, possession of ammunition without a firearms certificate - and possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

Det Con Adam Geary, from Bedfordshire Police, said: “This is a great example of how intelligence from the community can lead to us seizing lethal weapons and apprehending dangerous individuals."
