Guns handed into police in Cornwall as part of an amnesty are being checked - to see if they were used in a crime.

Almost two hundred shotguns, rifles and flares were given to officers in the Duchy.

That is along with two grenades with the pins out and a taser.

Chief Inspector Daniel Evans tells us eighty rounds of ammunition are off the streets too: "Any weapon that's handed in is a huge benefit. It could be for example; that house could be broken it could be that a weapon of some sort could be stolen for example, so every weapon we get handed in is an opportunity to make Devon and Cornwall safer.

"Clearly there will be some forensic examinations of some of the weapons that are handed in. If we find that some of those weapons for example may have been used in the commission of a crime then that's clearly something we would investigate. However pure possession of the weapon would apply to the amnesty."

The full breakdown of firearms handed in includes:

SHOTGUNS 159 shotguns, 25-Plymouth, 70 Devon and 64 Cornwall/IOS

PISTOLS 145 Pistols: 22-Plymouth, 65 Devon and 58 Cornwall/IOS

RIFLES 43 Rifles, 8-Plymouth, 26 Devon and 9 in Cornwall/IOS

AIRWEAPONS 94 Airweapons: 20-Plymouth, 37 Devon and 37 in Cornwall/IOS

BB GUNS 13 BB Guns: 3-Plymouth, 6 Devon and 4 in Cornwall/IOS
