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.

Nearly half of UK adults think Islam is ‘incompatible’ with British values

Almost a third of UK adults think Islam encourages Muslims to carry out acts of violence against non-Muslims, a survey suggests. It found nearly half (48 per cent) think the religion is ‘incompatible’ with British values.

The poll, which questioned 2,077 people of different ages, genders and regions, showed how ‘misunderstood’ the religion is in the UK, said the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

Two thirds (67 per cent) of the public agreed most Brits have a negative view of Islam, while 58 per cent believe Islamophobia is widespread in the UK.

The results come as the country’s largest Muslim convention, the Jalsa Salana, will take place on Friday in Hampshire with more than 30,000 expected to attend.

“London deserves better. Get Khan Out.”

She included a screen grab of a news article claiming Mr Khan’s approval ratings had dropped to the lowest of his mayoralty.
