An initiative enabling people to hand in firearms across the Humberside Police area resulted in a total of 55 weapons being surrendered.

For two weeks, five police stations across the area were accepting weapons over front counters from people wishing to dispose of unwanted firearms – 21 were in North East Lincolnshire, five in North Lincolnshire, 14 in East Riding and 16 in Hull.
