OFFICERS on patrol in Rawmarsh found a machete in the passenger footwell of a car while carrying out a search yesterday afternoon (Monday). 

Neighbourhood officers patrolling Kilnhurst Road stopped a grey BMW 330 estate shortly after 4pm after it aroused suspicions.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said officers had stopped the vehicle because there was only one occupant inside when the car was only covered by insurance for a provisional driver.

"Upon searching the vehicle, we recovered a machete from the passenger footwell," she added. 

A 26-year-old Rotherham man was arrested at the scene under suspicion of possessing a bladed article in a public place. He was issued with a summons to court.
