A Bristol magistrate who allegedly breached his firearms licence is due to appear in court, the BBC has learned.

Tim Marter, who is also a North Somerset Conservative councillor, had guns and ammunition seized by police at his home in December.

He said he was storing the ammunition for a constituent intending to dispose of it with an official firearms dealer.
