Two men have been arrested for carrying a baton in Huntingdon.   

The pair were apprehended by Cambridgeshire Police today after officers discovered a baton hidden inside a vehicle in Huntingdon. 

In Peterborough, officers also found a baseball bat and a knuckle-duster on another man during a stop and search.

Cambridgeshire Police in a Facebook post said: "Convinced he wasn’t on the way to a baseball game, officers seized the weapons and gave him a night in custody instead.

“Today’s top tip: if you carry a knuckleduster or baton, don’t be surprised if you get arrested.  

“That’s what happened to two men in their 40s stopped by police in Huntingdon.

"Officers suspected something wasn’t quite right and found this baton hidden inside the vehicle.
