Three men arrested in an armed police operation on Monday have been bailed.

The men - aged 24, 29 and 35 - were arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods after detectives, supported by armed officers, stopped a car in Farringdon Road, Clerkenwell, at around noon.

They were bailed to return to a police station in mid-February.
