Archaeologists have uncovered what could be a Bronze Age sword dating back as far as 4000 years on the site of a new community football pitch.

Diggers moved into the site in Carnoustie, Angus, after a collection of relics were found while laying foundations for the new sports field.

Work to the playing fields has now been halted while archaeologists scour the site.

Early excavations have revealed a trove of artefacts that they believe could date back thousands of years.
On Friday the team discovered what appears to be a sword with a gold hilt dating back to the Bronze Age.

Due to the fragile nature of the find it has to be specially lifted out in order to conserve it for experts to examine in a laboratory.
