Gun fanatic from Wordsley gets 16 years
A gun fanatic who hoarded some of the deadliest weapons ever encountered by police in the West Midlands was today beginning a 16-year prison sentence.
Farmer David Evans had Uzis, shotguns and a hitman-style pistol with a silencer, some of which were only issued to foreign armies.
Police who seized the deadly guns feared they could have been used by far-right extremists.
They say the guns could have caused mayhem had they fallen into the hands of terrorists or drugs gangs.
