One of Britain’s largest arms and ammunition shipments made with a 3D printer has been seized by police.
Metropolitan Police officers raided a suspected arms factory in north-west London on Friday and made two arrests.
They found boxes of components that investigators believe were parts of firearms that were made for sale.
Commander Paul Brogden said: “This operation shows how we continue to relentlessly attack those attempting to bring deadly firearms onto the streets of London.
“We found a large number of components that could be used to make weapons and believe 3D printed firearms were made to sell.
“This shows how the emerging threat of 3D firearms continues to evolve.”
The raid was conducted by officers from the Met’s Operation Viper anti-gun crime initiative.
Two men, one in their 20s and one in their 40s, were arrested on suspicion of gun crime and released on bail until November.
