Guns are being smuggled into the UK using online auction sites such as eBay, according to a report by MPs due out this week.
Although the sale of weapons is illegal on eBay, the report is expected to say that villains are getting round the barriers by buying component parts, such as barrels, firing mechanism and triggers.
According to the Sunday Times, which has seen a copy of the report, the committee of MPs is to call on the Government to take action.
The paper quotes the report as saying: "This loophole is a potential route for illicit weapons into the UK and should be addressed."
