Elephant and Castle man charged after allegedly trying to smuggle guns through the Channel Tunnel

An Elephant and Castle man has been charged after allegedly attempting to illegally smuggle four guns and ammunition through the Channel Tunnel into the UK.

Steven Landers, 55, of London Road, was charged with illegal importation of weapons after Border Force officers discovered four Heckler and Koch handguns and 100 rounds of 9mm ammunition in a BMW on May 19 at the Channel Tunnel terminal in Coquelles.

The National Crime Agency said the guns and ammunition were discovered in a bag underneath the carpet floor of the car boot.

Another occupant of the car alongside Mr Landers, Steven Mulroe, 41, of Battersea, was also charged with illegal importation of guns.

The pair appeared at Margate Magistrates Court on Wednesday (May 22) and were remanded in custody to appear at Canterbury Crown Court on June 24.
