Londoners give up their guns
The Metropolitan Police says 68 firearms and 1,000 rounds of ammunition have been handed in at police stations across the capital, as part of its Firearms Surrender campaign.
The surrender gives Londoners the chance to dispose of firearms or ammunition, by taking it to a local police station and handing it in. It will run until 11pm on 23 November.
During the two-week period, those surrendering firearms may not face prosecution for illegal possession and they can remain anonymous, however each live weapon will be forensically checked for evidence.
A webpage publicising the surrender and featuring a map for users to check the location of their nearest police station has been placed on the Met’s website
