TWO teenagers and an older man have been arrested after police found a handgun and ammunition while stopping two cars in Blackstock Road in Finsbury Park.

Detectives from the Specialist Crime team found the gun and ammunition yesterday (Tuesday) in the course of an ongoing investigation.

Det Supt Neil Ballard said: “I’d like to reassure Londoners that we are continuing to crackdown on organised crime and violent criminals during this pandemic and unprecedented times.

“This excellent piece of police work has resulted in another dangerous weapon being taken off the streets of London.”
