A treasure trove of Roman coins was dug up and left on the landowner's doorstep in Tarvin.

A foreign metal detectorist made the find in February and has since left the country.


An inquest was held to determine whether the discovery would be deemed as treasure at Warrington Town Hall on September 27.

A total of 13 copper alloy coins were handed over to the British Museum to inspect.

Little is known about the finder, who did not attend the inquest, and why they chose to kindly leave their prize find.
