NCA operation leads to discovery of “gun factory” on East Sussex industrial estate: National Crime Agency investigators have discovered what they believe to be a sophisticated gun factory on an industrial estate in Hailsham, East Sussex.

On Saturday evening officers from the NCA’s Armed Operations Unit were deployed to Hailsham as part of a live investigation.

Officers heard loud bangs consistent with gunshots emanating from inside an industrial unit on Diplocks Way. The unit was an engineering workshop, with signage outside showing it to be a gearbox repair business. As NCA officers moved in three men exited the building and they were immediately arrested. One NCA officer had to discharge a taser to affect the arrest of one of the men. Two handguns and a quantity of ammunition were recovered.
