John Sayer, 49, from Canary Scaffolding, on Ace industrial estate, Stratton Strawless, near Norwich, was also found with five knuckle-dusters, two extendable batons and another stun gun, when his luggage was searched at Norwich Airport after a trip to Thailand, where his wife is from, on May 21 last year.

Sayer, who had denied possessing the prohibited weapons and claimed it was a “total mistake” they were in his luggage, appeared at Norwich Crown Court today to be sentenced after being found guilty last week following a short trial.

Sentencing Sayer to a total of six years imprisonment, Judge Peter Jacobs said Sayer had acquired the items and placed them in his suitcase.
