A juvenile has been arrested in Essex this evening after police seized a large knife.

Essex Police’s operational support group tweeted about the incident in Chelmsford earlier this evening.

“Juvenile male found in possession of this,” the force tweeted, posting an photo of the bladed weapon.

“Arrested and in our custody. Another deadly knife off the streets.”

Roads policing Sergeant Colin Shead praised the support group for making the arrest.

“No excuse for carrying knives,” he added.

One Twitter user described the knife as “ridiculous”.
