UK police find ‘sophisticated’ illegal gun factory

UK police have uncovered a “sophisticated,” “large-scale” illegal gun and ammunitions factory in Southern England in a shop posing as a gearbox repair business. Police found the factory when responding to “loud bangs consistent with gunshots” emanating from a warehouse. Over 30 illegal firearms were recovered, along with ammunition, and three people were arrested. The investigation on how the factory might be connected to gangs and other illegal activities is ongoing.
