Police confiscate toy gun from man in Exeter

Police have confiscated a toy gun from a man after he carried it twice in public in a Devon city.

Officers were alerted on Thursday to a man seen with what was believed to be a handgun in the Heavitree area of Exeter, but he was not located.

He was spotted on CCTV in the same area on Friday night and stopped by officers, who found the toy on him.

The toy was surrendered and the man was given "suitable words of advice" about the alert he had sparked, police said.
