Stun guns bought via mail order come through UK Customs

Stun guns with a voltage 20 times stronger than police Tasers can be illegally imported into the UK with ease, a BBC investigation has found.

Possessing a stun gun carries a maximum jail sentence of 10 years but Inside Out bought two devices by mail order - which both made it through customs.

The BBC also obtained figures showing police have seized hundreds on the streets of London in recent years.

The UK Border Force (UKBF) insists it is tackling the problem.
