Isle Of Man Weapons Surrender

3rd March 2017

More than 90 firearms have been handed in during a month-long weapons amnesty in the Isle of Man.

Police said 92 firearms, along with dozens of knives and other weapons including a cross bow, were surrendered at police stations across the island in February.

Firearms Officer Carl Woods said the scale of the response was "surprising".

The scheme, authorised by the Attorney General, meant people handing in items are exempt from prosecution. Similar surrenders have taken place in the UK.
