A family made a shocking discovery at the weekend when they found a gun on Weston-super-Mare’s beach.
Jordan Batten came across the weapon on rocks near Birnbeck Pier on Saturday, but it had been covered by the tide by the time police arrived.
Jordan’s father, John, retrieved the firearm on Sunday, and Avon and Somerset Constabulary’s officers collected it from him on Monday.
Police have not yet been able to confirm what type of gun it was, or whether it was loaded.
