Hundreds expected in gold bar beach search

It might sound like a pirate's tale, but hundreds of treasure hunters are expected on Folkestone beach on Friday to dig for gold.

It is part of the Folkestone Triennial - a three month art festival which promotes public art installations across the town and organisers have said prospectors can keep any gold they find.

They have been told that 30 gold bars worth a total of £10,000 are buried under the sand.

John Maguire reports.
