In 2014 A Teenage metal detector trawling Somerset river stumbles across hidden cache of 40 ‘IRA’ weapons – including ‘Widow Maker’ rifle and Nazi machine gun



Trawling through the water with a magnet, schoolboy James Cork had only expected a modest haul of scrap metal.

But, last week, the 16-year-old from Somerset stumbled across a rather more shocking discovery – a hidden cache of 40 deadly weapons.

The arsenal of rusting and grubby guns dating back to the Second World War included a Browning .50 machine gun, which could take down a helicopter, and an M16 assault rifle.

An expert has suggested the guns may have belonged to the IRA and could have been dumped when they were meant to be declaring their arms in 2001.

The teenager from Street had taken up the unusual hobby of magnet fishing six months ago, but had only managed to salvage the odd bit of scrap metal.

But while combing Greylake on the Somerset Levels with a rope and a strong magnet tied to the end, he and a friend suddenly came across a 40-strong haul of terrifying weapons.

Among them were parts of a Nazi MG 42 light machine gun, which has a 600m killing range, and a Czech SA23 9mm submachine gun.

He told The Sun: ‘I was shocked. I’ve never found anything like this before. There were a few whole weapons, but not many. Some were machine guns, pistols and revolvers. And there was a massive machine gun on a stand.

A HOARD of Bronze Age treasure will be the subject of a treasure inquest to be held next week in Barrow.

Following the discovery of several gold items through the use of a metal detector one of Cumbria’s assistant coroners will soon rule on who is the legal owner of the hoard.

The magnificent collection of golden jewellery was found in Urwick in April last year. The items found include a bracelet, three lock rings and a segment from a copper cauldron.

Estimates have been made as to the age of the items unearthed, placing them between 1150BC and 800BC.

The UK Detector Finds Database (UKDFD) is a hobby-based initiative, which has the following aims:

To promote a recording ethos within the hobby and encourage those detectorists who would not otherwise record their finds to do so by making use of the UKDFD self-recording facility

To bring about an increase in the number of detectorists recording their finds, and the overall number of items that are recorded

To make available a facility and encourage the recording of post c.1650 finds, many of which are not eligible for inclusion on the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) database

To provide an easy-to-use and supportive self-recording environment for detectorists, which employs the latest technology and methods of communication

To make the UKDFD database accessible as an internet resource for the identification and research of items recorded, and to preserve that information for the benefit of future generations
