Three guns have been found dumped in a street bin in Westminster, that's specially designed to take hundreds of knives out of the hands of young people.

Police said the guns were found in a metal vault close to a boys' school, along with more than 400 knives and swords over the last year.

It comes as more weapons bins are placed around London, there are now 16 of them.

Mayor Boris Johnson has told London's Heart it's an important part of getting to grips with the problem of knife crime.
