Two men who uncovered £3.3million worth of Anglo-Saxon treasure - dubbed the Staffordshire Hoard - remain at war 10 years after they fell out over the discovery.

Terry Herbert, 64, discovered the ancient gold and silver haul on 75-year-old farmer Fred Johnson's land.

Their find, on July 5, 2009, became an international sensation and was sold off to museums, leaving the men rich.

But the duo fell out over the cash, with Mr Herbert claiming Mr Johnson wanted it all for himself.

He even said his find of 3,900 artefacts - Britain's largest ever haul of Anglo-Saxon treasure - was a curse and blamed it on ruining his friendship with Mr Johnson.
