Firearms and a grenade have been found at an address in Norwich following a police incident.
Officers were called to Clifton Street in the city on Wednesday following reports a man had made verbal threats to another resident.
Police attended and a 23-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident and taken to Wymondham Police Investigation Centre where he remains in custody.
Following the arrest police searched the man’s property and discovered four firearms and a grenade.
This resulted in bomb disposal specialists from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal attending the incident.
The firearms were confirmed as deactivated.
It comes after a controlled explosion was carried out in Hellesdon at the weekend after a man fished a grenade out of the River Wensum while he was ‘magnet fishing’.
It is believed it dated back to the Second World War.
