7,000 weapons handed to police

Almost 7,000 weapons have been handed in to Essex Police as part of a knife amnesty launched 16 months ago.

They have been collected in amnesty bins in Clacton, Colchester, Chelmsford, Braintree and Basildon.

As well as knives, other weapons handed in include a BB gun and a pellet gun.

Toni Knight, from charity Only Cowards Carry, shows us some of the items recovered.
