More than 25 guns have been handed in to Kent Police in the first week of a national firearms surrender.

The guns handed in include nine air rifles, 14 shotguns and 124 rounds of ammunition.

The two week campaign means people can surrender unwanted firearms, stun guns and pepper sprays but won't face prosecution. It runs until Sunday the 4th of August.

They can be handed into the front counter at the following police stations:

· Folkestone· Margate· Canterbury· Tonbridge· Maidstone· North Kent· Medway· Sittingbourne
