Illegal stun guns imported to UK


Stun guns with a voltage 20 times stronger than police Tasers can be illegally imported into the UK with ease, a BBC investigation has found.

Reporters from Inside Out London were able to buy two illegal devices online and import them into the UK. Possessing a stun gun carries a maximum jail sentence of 10 years.

The UK Border Agency (UKBA) insists it is tackling the problem.
