Woman arrested in police gun hunt on M6

A woman was arrested by armed police when they stopped a car on a Lancashire motorway on Saturday.

Officers were called to investigate reports that someone travelling north in a Mitsubishi Shogun on the M6 had a gun.

Police eventually stopped and searched the vehicle on the M55.

No firearm was found but a 56-year-old woman from Manchester was arrested and later cautioned for carrying an offensive weapon.
