Four Mountford barristers act in ‘gun factory’ conspiracy


William England and Daniel Frier, leading James Lloyd and Laurence Harris, act for the first and second defendants in a case involving conspiracy to transfer up to 140 UK-made replica Browning pistols from an “illegal gun factory” in East Sussex.

The case is claimed by the National Crime Agency to represent “the first time a criminal gun factory of this nature has been found by UK law enforcement” and involved the seizure of machinery, ammunition, component parts for more than 100 pistols, and the recovery of live weapons across London and the South-East.

William and James are instructed by Mark Rogers of Sussex Defence Solicitors.

Daniel and Laurence are instructed by Toby Brothers Solicitors.

The case continues.
