110kg of explosives surrendered in NSW


More than 110 kilograms of commercial explosives and thousands of detonators have been surrendered to NSW police during an amnesty period which is due to end in a month.

The six-month amnesty began in mid-March and allows those with explosives to hand them to police without the risk of prosecution.

Police on Friday said more than 110kg of explosives, 20kg of black powder, 3600 detonators, 800 metres of safety fuse and 1700 metres of detonating cord had so far been handed in.
