Weapon haul hailed 'a success' by West Midlands Police
West Midlands Police have described a two-week gun "surrender", which has yielded more than 100 weapons, as a "huge success".
Shotguns, rifles, pistols and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition have been handed into police stations in the force area between 19 July to 2 August
The operation follows tougher firearms legislation introduced last month.
All of the guns are being tested for evidence of use in crimes.
Det Insp Andy Bannister said: "It's been a huge success - that's 131 fewer firearms that could end up on the hands of criminals."
