'Firearm' search in Vernon Park lake in Old Basford
Police divers have been searching a lake in a Nottingham park following reports that a gun could have been discarded in the water.
The lake, at Vernon Park in Old Basford, is being checked by the force's underwater team.
Det Ch Insp Louise Jordan said: "As with any suspected firearms activity we have taken this report extremely seriously."
The force has not said what crime the weapon may be linked to.
In August, a 23-year-old woman suffered a single gunshot wound outside the nearby Vernon pub.
She was treated in hospital and later released.
