An appeal to buy a Roman hoard described as a "once-in-a-lifetime" discovery has reached its £44,000 target.

The hoard of more than 1,800 coins was found by a metal detectorist near the village of Wold Newton, East Yorkshire, in 2014.

The Yorkshire Museum in York launched the public appeal to purchase the collection in July.

About half the money came from individual donations, the museum said.

It also received a £10,000 grant from the Arts Fund and a donation of £9,981 was made by the American Friends of the Art Fund.
