He pleaded guilty to of five counts of possession of prohibited firearm and five counts of possession of ammunition without a firearm certificate.

The Met Police said they had uncovered “two shotguns, two revolvers, a handgun, and numerous types of ammunition” at Knox’s home address on Penge High Street during a raid back in May.

Detective Constable Jamie Kirby from the Met’s South Area Command Unit, added: “Officers across London are working around the clock to locate and remove weapons from the streets of London.

“There is no good reason to have deadly weapons like those found in Knox’s address, other than to cause serious harm.

“Tackling violent crime is a priority for the Met and we remain committed to bringing anyone who carries or holds firearms and other lethal weapons to justice.”
