Manchester Airport shows us the hoard of weapons people have attempted to bring into the country. Adam McClean reports.
Border Force officers are encouraging people to think about the things they bring back to the UK from abroad. Over the past few months they have seized replica firearms, knuckledusters and even a blowpipe.
Staff at Manchester Airport have seized dozens of weapons from passengers this year, including knives, guns and knuckle-dusters.
Border Force officials are asking holiday-makers to think carefully about any "souvenirs" they bring back to the UK.
Many wrongly believe the items are legal here, because they are on open sale in resorts in destinations like Spain, Turkey and Bulgaria.
