The "numerous" weapons were taken on Wednesday night, says Inspector Stuart Nightingale.

"Police are naturally concerned as to where these firearms may be, and what they may be used for," he said.

"If you know something about the theft of these firearms, or know who may have them, it is important that you contact police."
