More than 90 firearms have been handed in to police in Norfolk following a national surrender on firearms and ammunition.
The surrender, which ran from Saturday 20 July and Sunday 4 August 2019, encouraged people to hand over their unlicensed and unwanted guns without fear of prosecution.
In total, 92 firearms were surrendered in Norfolk as well as ammunition.
Richard Kennett, Firearms Manager for Norfolk and Suffolk Constabularies, said: “The surrender was a success and we’re extremely pleased with how many firearms have been handed in.
“We had 45 shotguns handed in, as well as 10 rifles, 25 air weapons, 11 imitation firearms and one handgun.
“Although gun crime isn’t a big problem in our counties, it’s important we take measures such as this to reduce the chances of dangerous weapons falling into the wrong hands.”
