Officers recovered a number of weapons including two machetes, two air weapons, a hammer and a crow bar. An underwater search team assisted in the search for a possible further weapon, thought to be a hammer or similar.

Earlesfield Lane was closed to allow police to undertake a scene investigation, but has since been reopened.
