He appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court where his case was adjourned to a further hearing at Nottingham Crown Court later this month.

Bickerton was remanded in custody until his next court appearance.

Detective Inspector Nick Hall, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The force will use all investigative means at its disposal to crack down on weapon-enabled crime and reduce the availability of firearms.

“Firearms offences are incredibly serious and we will always look to take action against anyone found to be in illegal possession of a gun.

“It is well-documented that drug crime and further offences caused by drug dealing have a devastating impact on local communities.

“We continue to work relentlessly to tackle this sort of criminality and to protect and safeguard those living across the city and county.”
