A vicar from Staffordshire has handed in four guns as part of a nationwide firearms surrender.
Police forces across England and Wales have been giving people the chance to hand over unwanted guns, ammunition and other weaponry.
The Rev Christopher Parkes, from Burntwood Methodist Church, gave up four starting pistols.
The vicar decided to participate in the surrender so the guns 'don't get into the hands of criminals'.
They had been stored in a safe for at least 12 years, and had only been used only by the drama group, he said.
