A large knife measuring over 25cm has been seized in a Hornchurch weapons sweep.
The weapon - seized by Hacton Police on February 1 - is one of a number captured in recent weeks in Havering.
The force said the weapon had been recovered in the alleyway between Bevan Way and Kempton Avenue.
The day before, a man dumped a knife in Hornchurch town centre after being stopped by police and managed to escape arrest.
