60 guns found in car: Dover firearms haul ‘Biggest-ever at UK port’

Border Force officers have uncovered what is believed to be the biggest haul of guns at a UK port.

A 37-year-old Dublin man will appear in court on Monday charged with illegally importing firearms into the UK.

Sixty guns were found in a Volkswagen Passat after it was stopped at the Port of Dover after arriving from Calais on Friday.

A Sig Sauer P226 blank firing handgun with a barrel converted to fire live ammunition was discovered in the car’s rear-left quarter panel.

Another 59 firearms were then found deep inside the vehicle’s bumper and both rear quarter panels.
