They were held on suspicion of criminal possession of firearms and possession of cannabis with intent to supply.

Det Insp Andy Bannister, of West Midlands Police, said: "The recovery of any weapon and any bullets is always a significant event.

"We always consider that each may represent a life saved.

"There can only be a zero tolerance to gun crime and I would urge anyone with information to call us."
