Detective Sergeant Tom Carver, of Nottinghamshire Police’s public protection team, said: “Anyone who makes violent threats towards another person with a firearm can expect a robust response from police – and that is what happened in this case.

“We understand incidents of this nature will cause concern but the suspect in this case is known to the victims and we are satisfied there was no wider threat to the local community.”
