A large bible containing letters from the 19th Century has been discovered in a street in Portishead, North Somerset.

Police are appealing to the owner of the leather-bound bible to come forward so they can be reunited.

There are two documents inside; a letter in old script, and information about the death in the 1860s of a Mr and Mrs Millburn.

It was given to police on 9 October after being found in Roath Road.
