A Welsh metal detector enthusiast stumbled across a "priceless" 800-year-old silver and gold cross.

Malcolm Corfield, 63, nearly "fainted with excitement" when he found the precious artefact from the Middle Ages buried 8in deep in the ground.

The delighted detector had been using his £1,300 XP Deus metal detector with friends when he unearthed the 30mm charm while scouring fields on the outskirts of Newport.
