Police investigating reports of gunshots in a part of Nottingham say they "have found no physical evidence of firearms activity".

Officers were called to Arnold Road in Basford at about 18:00 GMT on Tuesday and the road was closed while inquiries were carried out.

The cordon was lifted at about 10:00 GMT on Wednesday after an "extensive" search found no signs of gun fire.

A Nottinghamshire Police spokesperson said inquiries would continue.

Police added there had been no reports of damaged property or injury and CCTV of the area would be viewed as part of the investigation.
