Two men were arrested for possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, last night.

A 29-year-old and his 21-year-old companion were taken into custody after armed officers swooped onto the van they were travelling in, in Truro Road, Wood Green, at 10.25pm.

After searching the van, police recovered a revolver handgun and ammunition.

Both men remain in police custody at a north London police station.

Mark Rowley, the assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said: "Day in and day out detectives and firearms officers continue to combat gun crime to protect Londoners.

“I am proud of what they do and their resilience and focus to continue even in the midst of this week's news.

"Armed criminals have killed more than 50 people in this city - from all communities - in the past 3 and half years.

“We send out well-trained, professional armed officers nearly every day to protect the public from this threat."
