Police have launched a campaign to reduce the number of illegal firearms in the capital.

East Area Command officers, who oversee the London boroughs of Redbridge, Havering and Barking and Dagenham, are urging residents to give up any guns as part of a firearm surrender fortnight.

"Operation Aztec is running between July 20 and August 4, 2019," a Met spokesman said.

"Hand in any firearm or ammunition to your local police station - no questions asked.
