Firearms trained police officers were dispatched to the car park behind the Noah's Ark pub in Courtney Street just before 8pm after reports of a group of youths with a weapon - firing at a nearby shop.

Three girls with the group were taken home while two 17-year-old men were detained - one in possession of a BB gun.
The 17-year-olds, one from Ford and one from Milehouse, were arrested on suspicion of causing harrasment, alarm or distress - a public order offence.
One made a full admission and will be dealt with by restorative justice.
No further action will be taken against the second man.
