A man who brazenly threatened people with a handgun after a minor road rage incident has been jailed.

Daniela Closca was driving an Audi through Croyland Road, Edmonton, when another car pulled up leaving him with little room to carry on down the road.

The car behind him reversed expecting Closca to do the same, but instead he got out of his car and angrily walked over to the car behind.

Then, he went back to his car and the woman inside gave him a handgun, which he waved around with a menacing glare before jumping back into his car.

A marker was put on the car and it was later found in Bedford and taken to a north London police station.

When Closca turned up expecting officers to give him his car back, he was arrested after his driving licence photo matched CCTV footage taken from nearby.

The 30-year-old, of Foster Hill, Bedford, pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and sentenced to 18 months in jail.

Detective Constable Joel Gregory, the investigating officer from Enfield's Major Crime Unit said: "Closca brazenly produced a firearm in the street following what appeared to be an insignificant traffic dispute.

"He had complete disregard for the safety of those around him and also made no effort to disguise what he was doing or who he was.

"It was clear that Closca produced that firearm to cause the occupants of the vehicle behind him to fear for their own safety.

"I would like to extend my thanks to the two members of the public who supported the police investigation. Without them this conviction would not have been possible."
