Knives handed in to police during their amnesty operation have been revealed to the public. 

Posted on the Swindon North and South police facebook pages, officers thanked the people who had already come forward and handed over their knives and showed off a pair of weapons. 

Swindon Advertiser:

The post on Facebook said: "Great to see knives and weapons handed in at amnesty locations in Swindon. 

"Whether it's an illegal knife, a kitchen knife, butter knife or decorative spear, all knives and blades can have devastating consequences in the wrong hands. 

"Thank you Swindon."

Known as Operation Sceptre, Wiltshire Police are running the knife amnesty until September 29. 

Swindon Advertiser:

The aim of the operation is to encourage people to hand over their knives to amnesty bins placed across Swindon and Wiltshire. 

The bins in Swindon are located at Gablecross police station, Broadgreen Community Centre, the town centre policing point and Pinetrees Community Centre.
