Officers uploaded an image of their shocking find on their Twitter account yesterday.

Previous sweeps in the borough have discovered weapons tucked away in bushes and a killer zombie knife was found hidden at the back of an electricity junction box in July.

A scaffold pole, clean drug needles and identity cards that probably belonged to theft victims were also found during a previous sweep.

In July, Det Insp Chris Soole told the Advertiser weapon sweeps would take place more regularly in the borough as part of their fight against knife crime.

Encouraging locals to get involved, he said: “People shouldn’t be surprised seeing police searching parks and estates regularly. We’ll even knock on people’s doors and invite them to join us - anyone can take part.”
