No charges have yet been brought against the men

Five men remain in custody after being arrested on suspicion of possessing firearms and offensive weapons in Angel.

Firearms officers and Trident detectives carried out a vehicle stop on City Road just before 3.45pm yesterday (Wednesday). One shotgun and several knives were recovered, while the vehicle was also seized.

All men were taken to separate north London police stations for questioning. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said this morning that no charges have been made and that they all remain in custody for questioning.
