Guns and sword found in Middle Level Drain on Norfolk fenland
Police divers have recovered a haul of weapons including guns and a sword during the search of a Norfolk river.
They were discovered after reports that a shotgun had been thrown into the Middle Level Drain at Terrington St John.
The weapons included two loaded rifles, a loaded semi-automatic shotgun and a double-barrelled shotgun.
Officers are now investigating to see if they can be linked to any historical crimes.
A reproduction short sword, similar to those used by Viking and Saxon battle re-enactors, and more than 300 12-bore shotgun cartridges were also found.
Lincolnshire diving squad was called in for the operation on Tuesday.
