GUN owners have been invited to take part in a webchat held by North Yorkshire Police today.

Members of the public who are interested in how police administer firearms licences can also take part in the Q&A session with the force’s licensing experts.

Dave Coutts, head of firearms and explosives licensing, said this was the first event of its kind the department had held, and he hoped it would give certificate holders and the public chance to ask questions on how gun licensing works.

The webchat takes place between 5pm and 6pm, and can be followed live at

Questions can be sent in advance at @NYPFirearmsLic on Twitter or the North Yorkshire Police Facebook page.
