An amateur metal detectorist made the discovery of his life when he found a beautiful Roman pendant in Farndon.

Lee Sansom, from Saltney, found the precious piece of history while on a hunt with his dad.

Found covered in mud, the silver pendant set with a carnelian is certainly a hidden gem.

The pendant will go to the Grosvenor Museum after they said they were interested in displaying it.

Lee said the piece was by far the best find he had made in 10 years of detecting.

He said: "We thought it was just junk when we found it.

"Once we realised it could possibly be Roman, or possibly first century, it got quite exciting. Just finding something of that age.
