If you own a firearm, or have found one that you don’t need, then for the next two weeks you can hand it in to the police anonymously and without fear of prosecution.

Lincolnshire Police have launched an eleven day firearms amnesty campaign on 3 November 2014.

They hope it’ll encourage members of the public to bring in weapons they may have acquired through relatives, brought back as war trophies or own but no longer need.

More information can be found by calling the non-emergency number 101, and Lincolnshire Police’s Chief Inspector Philip Baker and Fire Arms Training Officer Colin Williams spoke to our reporter Sebastian Edgington-Cole about the scheme.
