Following the success of the previous weapons amnesty held earlier this year, the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP) is again working in partnership with Suffolk police to reduce the number of weapons in circulation in the Waveney area.

The previous amnesty netted a significant number of weapons, predominantly knives, which were handed in at various locations in Beccles and Lowestoft.

The scheme is now being repeated in Halesworth, Bungay and Lowestoft.
