A man making his way to a Comic Con prompted a police response over his haul of toy weapons - which included a sword and imitation guns.

He was stopped by police on Springfield Road in Chelmsford at about 10:00 BST after a concerned call from the public.

But officers said it was "quickly established" the weapons were fancy dress items for the entertainment convention in London this weekend.

Essex Live adopted it’s usual calm and collected voice for this story.

A father has described the moment he saw a man wearing 'SAS clothing' walking down Chelmsford High Street clutching what he believed to be a rifle and a sword.

The 52-year-old pushed his son into a shop doorway for his own protection after setting eyes on the man at 10am today (October 26).

Armed police officers swarmed to the area after the man walked into Kings Coffee House in Moulsham Street and put the weapons on a table.
