A haul of dangerous weapons have been dropped in the knife bin outside Hounslow Police station.

Dozens of the terrifying sharp, bladed objects have been placed inside the amnesty bin in recent weeks.

The chilling image shows more than 20 knives of different sizes, which were surrendered as part of the Metropolitan Police drive to tackle knife crime.

The tools found in the knife bin range from kitchen knives to what appears to be a larger, cleaver knife.
