Revolver found at Hollins HouseRevolver found at Hollins House

Officers discovered what is thought to have been a double-barrelled shotgun, containing two cartridges, a revolver, ammunition, a pen gun and gloves, in a black rucksack at Hollins House in Tufnell Park Road.

They were carrying out a search of the rear of the building at about 11.15am when they found the bag hidden in the undergrowth.

No arrests have been made and enquiries are still ongoing.

The estate has had gun troubles in the past, with shots being fired at a car in 2010 and youths reportedly unloading on a balcony during the Queen’s Diamond Jubliee weekend, in June two years ago.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit crimestoppers-uk.org
