This month, Thames Valley Police is allowing people to hand in unwanted, unlicensed or illegal guns without fear of prosecution. 

The national surrender, which starts on May 12 and will run until May 29, is coordinated by the National Ballistics Intelligence Service (NABIS) and supported by police forces.

During this period, those surrendering firearms will not face prosecution for illegally possessing them at the point of surrender and can remain anonymous.
