Inspector Rob Lawton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Thanks to the quick actions of Nottinghamshire Police officers, we have been able to take potentially dangerous weapons off our streets and put a suspect before the courts.

“It is important that the public know that it is illegal to carry knives and that, whatever people might think, they won’t protect you from harm but will actually make you much more vulnerable and liable to end up in danger.”
