A TEENAGE suspect was Tasered and bitten by a police dog this morning after reports of a group armed with guns.

Police were initially called to reports of a disturbance in Wells Park Road, Sydenham, at 12.38am this morning.

Officers found no trace, but were called back at 2.01am where they were joined by police from the Met's firearms unit.

A group were seen by Lewisham officers running across Longton Avenue.

Police then found two loaded guns in the front gardens of homes in Longton Grove.

One boy was found hiding in the bushes of a front garden where he was bitten by a police dog and Tasered.

He was taken to hospital to receive treatment but is now in custody at a south London police station.
