More than 20 firearms have been handed in at Hatfield Police Station in an amnesty which is set to end today (Friday).

The amnesty, which has been running since last Monday, has seen many more firearms surrendered than initially anticipated and has been hailed as a great success.

Across the county 183 guns and two crossbows have been given up during the amnesty.

These included 38 shotguns, six rifles, 12 handguns, six antique firearms and 57 imitation weapons.

Anyone who is still concerned about firearms in their possession should call 101 to speak to a firearms licensing officer.

Police revealed today that 20 weapons were handed in in Welwyn Hatfield.
