"This activity is in support of Operation Raptor, which is the force’s ongoing, year-round response to combating weapon-enabled crime."

Police say their presence at the station was not in response to a specific incident or because there is an issue with weapons at the station, but a proactive exercise which they carry out at various locations around the county.

A number of weapons have been retrieved in the town in recent years while operations have been in progress.
