Shotgun found at Bournemouth nature reserve

Police have sealed off an area of a Bournemouth nature reserve after a dog walker found a shotgun in a case.

The gun, which was not loaded, was found on Kinson Common earlier.

Sgt Steve Houston, of Dorset Police, said: "This discovery is of real concern as children are known to play in this area."

Dorset Police appealed to dog walkers who use the area to contact them, along with anyone else who may have information about the shotgun.
