Armed police attended as drivers believed the gun was real

6th November 2021

Sergeant Ben Dolan said:

This is really concerning given the ages of the children involved.

“The imitation firearm seized has been painted black to give it a more authentic appearance; several drivers believed it was a real threat and that’s why we sent armed police to the scene.

“These children may have thought it was some kind of game or fun to be pointing a fake gun at people but this caused great concern. And it’s ended with four boys being stopped by armed police which must have been pretty scary for them.

“It’s really important parents speak to their children about the dangers of carrying imitation guns and knives. They can get themselves in very serious trouble.”

We all need to work together to tackle knife crime. Have conversations with your children about the devastating consequences of knife possession.

Our Life or Knife website has lots of advice and support for children, parents and teachers that can help with those conversations.
