A section of Brayford Pool was temporarily cordoned off

A 27-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a controlled class B drug following a boat search in Lincoln which closed off part of Brayford Pool after a grenade was found.

A 100m police cordon was placed at Brayford Pool in Lincoln on Thursday morning when a suspected grenade was found on a boat.

The Explosive Ordnance Disposal team determined the grenade to be decommissioned, after officers searched a boat moored in Brayford Wharf East as part of an ongoing investigation.

During these searches, drug-related paraphernalia, a baton and a machete were found on the boat and seized by officers, resulting in the arrest of a 27-year-old man.

He has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled drug (class B), and possession with intent to supply a controlled drug (class B). He was later released under investigation while police enquiries continue.
