Uzi and bolt gun among Northamptonshire amnesty haul

A submachine gun capable of firing hundreds of rounds a minute is among the weapons handed into police as part of an amnesty.

Northamptonshire Police said the Uzi was one of 75 weapons given up in the first week of its campaign.

A samurai sword, a bolt gun used for stunning animals and a machine gun which had been hanging over someone's mantelpiece were also handed in.

Police gave BBC Look East a demonstration of how dangerous the weapons can be.

The amnesty runs until 28 September.
