Man held after shop knives seized

Police said they searched the Stuff premises on Union Street

A man has been arrested after police seized a large quantity of knives and other weapons from a shop in Glasgow.

The Stuff shop on Union Street was searched after a warrant was issued under the Knives Act 1997.

The act makes it a criminal offence to market knives in a way which suggests they are suitable for combat or likely to encourage violent behaviour.

A spokesman for Strathclyde Police said a 45-year-old man would be reported to the procurator fiscal.
