Officers from Suffolk police were called to Little St Mary’s in the village around 9.20pm Saturday, June 20.

Pictures showed a number of police cars, including a dog unit and armed officers near to the fire station.

A constabulary spokesman said armed officers were deployed after they received reports that an argument involving neighbours had broken out, involving what was believed to have been a firearm.

On arrival, officers retrieved the gun – which turned out to be a BB gun – and arrested one man at the scene.

The spokesman confirmed no one received any injuries as a result of the incident and that there were “no further issues”.
