Nose Turret - Expended Cases and Links

The Dams raid incorporated the use of the nose turret on the Lancaster. When the guns were fired, were the expended cases and links collected in canvas bags, or did they just fall to the bottom of the nose and get collected later? In the case of the Dams raid, if they just fell to the floor, they would have fallen on the bomb aimer during the run onto the target.

Any information concerning how the expended case and links were handled would be appreciated.
