Armed police called to house after man poses with guns on social media

ARMED police were called to a house in Yate after a man was seen posing with suspected firearms on social media site Snapchat.

An Avon and Somerset police spokesperson said a search was carried out in Westerleigh Road on July 11 "after officers were given intelligence that someone at the property may have been in possession of firearms".
The spokesperson added: "Officers found a number of BB guns, an air weapon and a gas-powered gun.
"The five weapons were disclaimed by the owner and retained by police.
"Officers gave a man in his 20s words of advice and he faces no further action."
None of the weapons found are understood to have been illegal.
