Police are appealing for people to hand in illegal or unwanted guns in a two-week campaign.

From Monday, 13 November and Sunday, November 26, illegal firearms can be surrendered to police with no further prosecution.

More than 100 guns were handed in during the same period last year.

Detective Chief Superintendent Rob Fordham said: "This firearms surrender is part of a larger Kent Police operation, known as Operation Raptor, to tackle, disrupt and prevent violent crime and the possession of offensive weapons across the county.

"During these two weeks we encourage the public to hand in as many unwanted or unlicensed firearms as possible.

"If you know where a weapon is being kept illegally, now is your chance to give it up or tell us anonymously where it is. You will not be prosecuted, you could prevent it falling into the wrong hands, and you could save a life."

Guns can be handed in at Swanley police station, as well as Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone.
