Photographs of the firearms have been released by South Yorkshire Police to show the range of weapons being surrendered across the county.

The amnesty is aimed at removing guns and knives from the streets and to prevent them falling into the wrong hands.

Weapons can be handed in at Snig Hill, Moss Way and Ecclesfield police stations in Sheffield, College Road station in Doncaster, Wombwell station in Barnsley and Main Street station in Rotherham.
