A woman who let her boyfriend hide a double-barrelled, sawn-off shotgun and ammunition in her house will be sentenced today.

Shereen Lawrence, 34, of Hillcrest Road in Walthamstow, and boyfriend Sunny Taiwo, 34, of Holt Road in Beckton, are due to appear at Inner London Crown Court later today for sentencing.

Lawrence was convicted of possessing a prohibited firearm on February 4.

Taiwo was convicted of 10 firearms offences, including three counts of possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life.

In November 2012 police found a Miroku 600 shotgun and 84 cartridges in a cupboard in Lawrence’s bedroom, as well as a photo of Taiwo on her bedside table.
