Fisherman finds machine gun in Enfield Lock

A former British soldier, who uses a magnet to fish for metal items underwater, has made a startling discover in Enfield Lock.

Gareth Bryer, who has previously found knuckle dusters, pistols and knives, came across a rare Mac 10 machine gun last month.

The discovery was being investigated by the Metropolitan Police, but was found to be too corroded.
