Three men have been arrested in Dudley as police take an imported gun off the Black Country's streets.

One has been arrested on suspicion of importation of a firearm, and two on suspicion of witness intimidation.

They were all under arrest on suspicion of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear and violence.

Firearms officers raided two homes in the town and found the gun, which is believed to have been illegally imported from the Czech Republic.

The gun, was originally designed to fire blanks but is capable of firing live rounds.
