A REPLICA Second World War German hand-grenade was among a collection of fake firearms stolen in a raid in East London.

Imitation pistols, assault rifles, sub-machine guns and two grenades were taken from the flat in Argyle House in Marshfield-street, Millwall, on the Isle of Dogs, between 1am on April 3 and 3pm April 7.

Police believe the firearms, although not functional, could be used in robberies as 'frighteners' to intimidate victims.

Tower Hamlets Burglary Squad appealed this week for anyone with information to call 020-8217 6689, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555111.
