'Gun' found in garden of Kirkwall house

Police are making inquiries after an object, believed to be a gun, was found in the garden of a home in Orkney.

The discovery was made while work was being carried out on the garden in Kirkwall.

Police confirmed that they were called to a house in the town last week following reports from a householder.

They said an item with what they described as "the appearance of a handgun"' was recovered from the address.
