When the Five Rivers team called us last Thursday to report an interesting find, at first we thought it might be a rare species of plant or amphibian. We then learnt what they had actually found was what looked like a WWI revolver.
The gun emerged from the sifted silt drawn up from the centre of the pond.
We have a duty to report the firearm to the Police and they were swift to remove it for further investigation.
Petersfield Town Council eagerly awaits further news.
