A sawn off shotgun with ammunition has been recovered

A sawn off shotgun has been recovered from waste land, in Speke, on Friday, 3 February 2017. The weapon was recovered by a street cleaner, who had found it on a small piece of land, at the end of Elloway Road, at round 1.50pm. Police have said that a further search of the area has uncovered a number of spent shotgun cartridges. Enquiries in the local area are ongoing. We are also told that the weapon and ammunition have been sent for forensic examination. Local Police Inspector Andy Wignall said:- "We will continue to work closely with our local partners in our communities. The recovery of this firearm and ammunition is excellent news as it means that it is 1 less weapon on our streets which could be used to cause fear or intimidation. I would urge anyone who has any information about where weapons or ammunition is being stored to contact Merseyside Police on:- 101 or Crimestoppers on:- 0800 555 111."
