Police appeal for information about haul of weapons after Colin Berry inquest

Police have appealed for information about a haul of weapons found at the house in Bradford of a man who died when he was shot in the head by his own gun during a raid on his home.

West Yorkshire Police said it was making the appeal after an inquest jury found that Colin Berry, 49, died accidentally at his house.

An inquest in the city heard how eight unarmed police officers arrived at Mr Berry's house in Buckingham Crescent to execute a drugs warrant on April 4 2013.

Some officers went upstairs to the bedroom where Mr Berry's Smith & Wesson handgun went off during a struggle with the first officer in to the room - referred to as Officer A.

The jury concluded Mr Berry's death was accidental.

Police have now said a haul of 12 live weapons, a crossbow and more than 1,000 rounds of live ammunition were recovered from Mr Berry's house.

A spokesman said: "Police are keen to hear from anyone who might have details about how and why he had these weapons in his possession."

He said: "Several imitation weapons and a quantity of class A and B drugs were also recovered from the property, after police carried out a warrant at the address in April 2013."
