Detective Inspector Dave Rimmer said: “My first thoughts are with the victims of all the offences who can now be assured the offenders will not be at liberty for the foreseeable future.

“At the time of the firearms offence there was a mother with her young child in the house. You can only imagine how frightening this would have been for them.
