A firearms dealer from Norfolk has appeared in court in connection with the discovery of a secret gun room in a Suffolk village.
The prosecution claim 65-year-old Anthony Buckland from Stoke Holy Cross near Norwich was selling prohibited guns. Some were section five firearms which are banned in Britain. He's charged with 20 firearms - linked offences.
Prosecuting barrister Andrew Oliver told the jury at Norwich Crown Court that Mr Buckland has a section five licence which allows him to deactivate weapons but not sell them in this country.
He said the alleged offences came to light after police discovered a large stash of weapons at a house in the Suffolk village of Wyverstone in 2014. They included machine guns, rifles, shotguns and ammunition.
The owner of the property was parish council chairman James Arnold who was arrested in connection with the find but died while awaiting trial.
The prosecution say that five of the firearms found in Mr Arnold's secret gun room were on Anthony Buckland's licence.
When arrested, he said he didn't know how the weapons had ended up in Mr Arnold's possession.
Mr Buckland has denied all the charges against him.
The trial's expected to last up to three weeks.
