Man hid shotgun under garden shed in Glasgow

A man has admitted hiding a double-barrel shotgun under his grandmother's garden shed in the south of Glasgow.

The High Court in Glasgow heard how Martin O'Reilly was arrested after police, acting on a tip-off, raided the property in Nitshill last April.

Officers found the working Russian-made gun wrapped in plastic bags.

O'Reilly, 25, from Priesthill, admitted illegally possessing a firearm. He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced next month.
