The incident, which happened yesterday, also led to the recovery of a crudely-made wooden mallet, which appeared to be stashed under the seat of a vehicle.

Two smaller knives were also seized by police, along with cash and drugs.

Chief Inspector Emma Brice, district commander for Eastbourne, Lewes and Wealden, tweeted the images.
