'Spectacular' Roman treasure found in Sandridge was discovered by first-time metal detector

The man who found 159 Roman coins in Sandridge had been using a metal detector for the first time when he made the discovery.

Wesley Carrington found the hoard, which is believed to be one of the biggest of its kind ever found in the UK, in October last year.
