The PSNI has been asked to provide a full report into separate gun finds in the County Antrim area.

Councillor Oliver McMullan of Sinn Féin who is on the board of the PCSP said that “we need to know” where the guns had come from initially.

Weapons were found in two locations, with rusted guns recovered from the River Bann and a rifle and camouflage belt wrapped in cling film near a caravan park in Ballycastle.

Both finds were made on July 22.

The guns in the river, which were heavily degraded, were found during magnet fishing, the process of using a magnet to recover metal objects from a bridge over the Bann near Ballymoney.

On that occasion a revolver and a longer weapon were found.

A report entitled ‘ Violent Extremism’ came to light during a meeting of the Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) recently.
