A STONEHOUSE man has lodged an appeal after police revoked his firearms certificate.

Kevin Tipper, of Whitefield Close, Stonehouse, appeared before Gloucester Crown Court on Monday, May 22.

Judge Ian Lawrie KC said an appeal will be heard on November 10.

Giles Nelson, representing the Chief Constable of Gloucestershire, told the court that the decision to revoke Mr Tipper's gun licence was taken following a police visit to his address.

"Two rifles were not in their cases but in the front room and not in a cabinet," he said.

"Mr Tipper had 300 rounds of .22 ammunition and a few extra magazines. But his certificate only allows him to

have 250 rounds."

Judge Lawrie told Mr Tipper: "It appears you are here because of a sequence of breaches of the licence in terms of the ammunition."

Mr Nelson added: "There are also some medical and some conduct issues."

Judge Lawrie adjourned the appeal to November 10 and told Mr Tipper the hearing would either be at Gloucester or Cirencester.
