Three boys have been arrested in connection with an alleged attempted robbery in Tunbridge Wells at gunpoint.

Police were called to Brokes Way after a report two teenage boys had been threatened with what appeared to be a firearm.

Officers have since arrested three youths - all aged under 16 - and have retrieved an imitation firearm, described as an antique musket.
