THREE people have been arrested after armed police swooped on a car in Dewsbury Moor this afternoon.

The armed response unit and police helicopter were called out at 2.10pm following reports of people with a gun driving a dark green Volkswagen along Webster Hill.

The car was traced to Beckett Crescent where two men and a 16-year-old girl were arrested.

The two local men, aged 39 and 40, were arrested on suspicion of public order offences and bailed. The girl was released without charge.

A police spokesman said a suspected air rifle had been found in the garden of a house in Beckett Crescent and enquiries were continuing
