A man has been charged with illegally possessing a firearm and keeping an ammunition hoard at a house in north Norfolk.

Antony Leake, 63, of Thains Lane, East Runton, has been charged with possession of a firearm without a certificate along with two counts of possession of ammunition.

Police found the “large quantity” of ammunition, much of it historical, at an address in the village in July this year.

Thains Lane was sealed off for hours while bomb disposal experts investigated the finds. Mr Leake is due to appear at Norwich Magistrates’ Court on October 18.
