An elderly Fife man has handed over nine weapons and ammunition to police under the current firearms amnesty.
The man surrendered the items to officers at Glenrothes Police Station on Friday.
Police Scotland launched its firearms surrender campaign on June 18. Across the country, 43 officers are accepting unwanted weapons.
The scheme allows people to hand back unlicensed firearms without fear of prosecution. It runs until this Sunday.
Chief Superintendent Colin Gall, divisional commander for Fife, said: “One of the outcomes of this campaign is about removing dangerous weapons from the street to reduce the amount of illegally held firearms within the public arena.
“There is always the possibility that weapons such as the ones handed in can fall into the hands of criminals either through lack of security or other criminal means.”
He added: “Often weapons are found in attics, garages, sheds or handed down through generations within families.
“It would also be helpful if family and friends could assist those less able to check their property for weapons.
“The campaign still has another week to go so we would ask anyone with firearms and ammunition to surrender them at a police station.”
