CONCERNS over the ability of Sark constables to deal with serious gun crime has led the island's Firearms Committee to seek a memorandum of understanding with Guernsey Police.

It follows an incident in which a threat was made to shoot Sark Newsletter editor Kevin Delaney in the legs.

The proposition, put forward by committee chairman Conseiller Richard Dewe, will be discussed at a meeting of Chief Pleas on 16 January.

'In light of a recent incident with the possible illegal use of firearms by a certificate holder and the mental state of another holder, the committee is concerned that the constables do not have the expertise to deal with a more serious situation where the services of fully trained specialist police firearms officers might be required,' he said.
