POLICE raided a March hotel for the second time in six months on Monday and again took away a collection of firearms.

Ten officers took part in the raid on the Griffin Hotel but owner Martin Ellis, 51, was away at the time. Police confirmed that they had now made arrangements to speak to him.

Last month he elected to be tried at Cambridge Crown Court on firearms charges resulting from the raid on the hotel in April.

As a result he was accused of possessing a TX 200 British Air Arms air rifle and a Poly-Kor slug cartridge without the necessary certificates on April 6.

He did not enter a plea when he appeared before Fenland magistrates last month and the case was adjourned for a committal hearing on September 26.
