Lewisham Police have taken to Instagram to show off their most recent knife haul.

A series of photos posted to the Met Police's Instagram story today (January 19) takes the public through a weapons sweep of the Lewisham area (pictured above).

Police dug into bushes, looked behind benches and even came close to diving in a few rivers.

In total four knives were recovered during the sweep.

That wasn't all they found though.

A screwdriver and a syringe were also among the haul police.

This also came just one day after Lewisham Police stopped a vehicle in Bromley road which resulted in a man arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs and on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon.
