A haul of more than 2,000 Roman coins and other pieces will go on display in Stoke-on-Trent after they were ruled as treasure.

Metal detectorist Stephen Squire discovered the coins in a field in his home village of Barlaston back in 2015.

Now they will be exhibited at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Hanley, where there is already a permanent Staffordshire Hoard display.

Mr Squire, aged 49, told a hearing at North Staffordshire Coroner's Court: "I was on my own that morning but quickly phoned my wife and son to come down when I found the objects."
