Police in the United Kingdom say they have discovered a “sophisticated” illegal gun factory in southern England and made three arrests as part of an inquiry into the criminal production of firearms.

The National Crime Agency (NCA), which specializes in fighting serious and organized crime in the UK, said on Wednesday that the facility in Sussex had disguised as a gearbox repair business.

“NCA investigators have discovered what they believe to be a sophisticated gun factory on an industrial estate in East Sussex,” the agency said on its website.

The agency said the site contained machinery and components suspected to be used to make firearms and ammunition.

Police said the operation to enter the site took place on Saturday, August 18, when officers heard bangs which sounded like gunshots from inside the unit in the town of Hailsham.

Three arrests were made at the site and police officers were forced to use a taser for one of them. The three are due to appear at a court on September 17.

Rob Hickinbottom, head of the National Firearms Threat Center at the NCA, said officers also recovered guns in various stages of production as well as two handguns and ammunition during the operation.

Following the chaotic scenes that occurred after the Nedbank Cup semi-final at Moses Mabhida Stadium in April, South African Police Services (SAPS) have confirmed that nine people have been convicted of public violence.



Kaizer Chiefs were knocked out of the competition after losing 2-0 to eventual champions Free State Stars, which prompted scores of angry fans to storm the pitch, causing damage worth R2.6 million.

The SAPS issued out a statement on Thursday, revealing that nine of the 11 suspects who appeared in the Durban Regional Court in connection with the incident were successfully convicted.

The incident left 18 people injured, with six admitted to hospital, and the match result prompted Steve Komphela – who coached Kaizer Chiefs at the time – to resign from his post after a tumultuous tenure where the club failed to secure silverware in three years.

The club was fined by the PSL, and was forced to stage two home matches at the venue – against Polokwane City and Chippa United -behind closed doors.

Should a similar incident occur in the next 24 months, Amakhosi will have to play another home fixture without any crowd support, according to PSL sanction.
