A plastic packet thought to be more than 50 years old was found on a beach.
Thomas Loraine-Smith made the discovery at Sand Bay, in Kewstoke.
The price on the packet reads three shillings.
Tom said: 'This plastic packet was found on the beach while walking.
'It's a TV snack for one-quarter chicken and then cost the equivalent of 15 pence.
