A shocked plumber has discovered a prisoner of war camp that housed 10,000 German soldiers during the Second World War – in his back garden.
David Murray, 39, was digging behind his bungalow when he unearthed a dog tag that clearly belonged to a German prisoner.
He gained permission from his landlord to continue excavations and within an hour he had located old bottles, buttons from uniforms and used ammunition.
David has now recovered more than 2,000 items from the camp, including a live grenade that had to be blown up by a RAF bomb disposal unit.
