People across the region are being asked to go through homes, sheds and outbuildings for any unwanted guns.

A two week firearms surrender is being held across the country from today, after a rise in gun crime.

It means anyone can hand weapons over to local police stations anonymously, although they will still be checked for links to any offences.

The firearms which surrender bins will take include those where their licence has run out - or even antiques.
