Belfast guns cache 'found by metal detector user'

Guns and ammunition found in an east Belfast beauty spot were discovered by a person using a metal detector, it is understood.

The 16 semi-automatic handguns and 800 rounds of ammunition were buried in woodland at Lisnabreeny Walk.

It is believed they had been there for several years and were in good condition.

The guns, thought to be from eastern Europe, are being examined to see if they had ever been used.

Police have described the discovery as the "largest find" in recent years.
