Treasure trove inquests this afternoon

What becomes of a haul of 60 silver coins, unearthed by a local metal detectorist, may be clearer at the end of today (Monday).

Two treasure trove inquests are to be held at Douglas Courthouse this afternoon.

By law, someone who uncovers items believed to be treasure, has to report the find to the coroner.

An inquiry will determine whether the objects should belong to the crown, or whether the finder has the right to keep them.

The second surrounds a piece of silver, discovered by another metal detectorist, from Viking times.
