Following a disagreement, Mc Neilly battered his partner over the head with an imitation gun at an address in Glasgow, Scotland. The victim, who did not remember the incident until she awoke in hospital, believed that she was going to be shot with a real gun. McNeilly had originally faced an attempted murder allegation, but the Crown accepted his guilty plea to a reduced charge.

Peter Wrafter has been jailed for twelve years after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply, possession of a prohibited firearm and possession of ammunition without a firearms certificate. Firearms officers searching Wrafter’s car in Doncaster, South Yorkshire in January this year, discovered a blank revolver with two bullets in a brown paper bag behind the driver’s seat. From another car outside his home address, officers retrieved 26kg of amphetamines and almost 2kg of diamorphine. Wrafter claimed that people to whom he owed a debt had pressured him to allow them to store drugs in his car. He also claimed to have had the firearm for years, only using it three times to shoot rats. The judge ordered the forfeiture of the drugs, gun and ammunition.
