Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

A WEAPONS stash in­clud­ing two sub­ma­chine guns and two grenades was found in a stolen UK car in Spain’s Costa del Sol.

Po­lice had kept an eye on the VW Golf af­ter it was flagged by UK au­thor­i­ties as stolen to see if any­one tried to use it.

When the stake­out in Be­na­havis near Mar­bella came to noth­ing the car was towed and searched in a po­lice pound.

In­side the boot was a ruck­sack con­tain­ing two sub­ma­chine guns with four boxes of am­mu­ni­tion, two hand grenades and two det­o­na­tors.

And in the glove com­part­ment there was a loaded pis­tol.
