Lincolnshire Police are holding a ‘firearm amnesty’ until Friday November 14, to allow gun owners to dispose of them without prosecution.
Between now and next Friday, members of the public will be able to hand in guns that they are lawfully or unlawfully holding to local police stations without fear of prosecution for illegal possession, and the option to remain anonymous.
Police stations in Lincoln, Skegness, Boston and Grantham will be collecting. Members of the public must call the police on 101 if they intend to hand in a firearm, and they will be given advice on the safest way to transport them to the nearest police station.
Lincolnshire Police have reassured the public that gun crime in the county remains low as a result of continual efforts from the force.
