Officers stopped a car on the East India Dock Road as part of a pre-planned swoop which resulted in a man being detained on suspicion of possession of firearms. They said the incident was not terrorism-related.

A Reuters reporter at the scene said armed police had attended and that the stopped car had one of its windows smashed.
