A PUMP-ACTION shotgun was among a shocking arsenal of firearms discovered in Forest Gate during a Met operation targeting serious youth violence.

Officers from Operation Armour, set up last month to rid the streets of east London of guns, also seized two pistols and a double-barrel shotgun, set from a property in Clare Gardens.

The lethal weapons were pictured next to bandanas used by gangs operating in the borough.

A 20-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident on August 18.

Four arrests for possession of drugs, one for GBH and one for possession of an offensive weapon were also made across the borough as part of the intelligence-led operation across six boroughs.
