Operation Guardian Turns-Up Hammer.

Wednesfield Police report that “As part of “Operation Guardian” the team carried out a weapons sweep of the canal area between the Dog & Partridge pub and the Boat Inn, following intelligence that weapons had been secreted in the bushes.
Finally after an extensive search by several team members a claw hammer was found hidden under a bush on the memorial gardens across the road from St Thomas’s church.

Gladly no bladed weapons were found on this occasion, but the team remain vigilant and are very grateful for any local knowledge.”

Any reports can be made via the web chat facility, crimestoppers or 101.
