NEARLY 250 knives and weapons have been scrapped following a knife amnesty in the March and Wisbech areas.

The haul included three swords, 25 flick knives and a knuckle duster, which made up a total of 245 weapons handed into designated bins. The weapons have now been melted down as scrap metal.

PCSO Kat Deronal said: "We received many more weapons than we expected. Members of the public may find themselves in possession of a weapon which they do not want - this is the perfect way to discard them.

"Knives can be dangerous and anyone who has an illegal or offensive weapon which they need to get rid of can make use of these bins.

"The bins have now been put back in their locations so members of the public can continue to make use of them.
