Three firearms were handed in to police stations on Merseyside just hours after the two week firearms surrender began.
All three weapons, which were handed in on Saturday, included a ball bearing pistol, a Webley air pistol and pellets, and an Olympic pin revolver and blank cartridges.
The weapons were found in the attics of residents and were believed to have previously been owned by elderly family members.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Baker said:
This year’s national firearms surrender started on Saturday 20th July and runs until Sunday 4th August.
