Firearms, drugs, cash and 24 bicycles have been found in what police described as "an Aladdin's cave of suspected stolen goods".

Police discovered the items while searching a house in the Eastfield area of Peterborough on Wednesday.

It was "not your average drugs warrant", an officer from the local force said.

Two men were arrested and released under investigation.

As well as the bicycles, officers found class A drugs, firearms including CS gas and a BB gun, £2,400 in cash, scented candles and clothing - all believed to have been stolen.

Officers are now "working through the haul to match up any against crimes that have been raised in the first instance including those that have previously been filed".
