NCA branch commander Martin Huxley said: "Preventing firearms from reaching the hands of criminals is a key priority for the NCA.

"This was a significant seizure of weapons, and I've no doubt that had we not stepped in they would have been used to commit violent acts on our streets."

Ragonzins was remanded in custody to be sentenced on July 26.
