Police are holding a firearms amnesty in Lincolnshire.

People with guns held lawfully or unlawfully can dispose of them safely and without prosecution between Monday and November 14. People have the choice to remain anonymous.

A police spokesman said: “Gun crime within Lincolnshire is statistically low, which is a result of continued efforts from the Force.

“An amnesty has not been held by Lincolnshire Police for nearly 10 years. It is just one of a number of measures that is being used to further reduce crime.”
