Police issue reminder as end of weapons amnesty nears

The police are urging anyone with an unwanted or unregistered weapon to hand it in within the next day.

The Constabulary has been holding a weapons amnesty throughout February, accepting blades, firearms and other weapons no questions asked throughout this month.

Knives, swords and other blades can be dropped off in specially-designated bins, while guns can be handed in at police counters.

Weapons can be disposed of at Peel, Castletown and Ramsey police stations, as well as Police Headquarters.
