Shock as jogger finds 16 inch lethal blade while running in Elm
An Elm runner was shocked and angry after finding a 16 inch sword while out for a daily run around the village today (Monday).
Ciaran Brennan, 29, was at the start of a 10k jog when he came across the dangerous weapon on the corner just past Wales Bank.
Posting on Facebook, Ciaran said: "This is approximately a 16 inch sword. I kicked the cover off to avoid touching it with my hands. I was shocked to find that it was that it was the real deal and not a toy. I didn't have my phone on me as I was at the start of a 10k jog.
"LuckilyI knew a resident who lives up the up the road, whose door I knocked on and she phoned the police for me. I have now been asked by the police operator I spoke to, to hand it into Wisbech police station which I am now doing. This blade in the wrong hands would kill somebody, luckily I found it and I am now doing my bit, to get blades off our streets and potentially save someone from being killed by this very dangerous weapon. I am shocked that I found such a thing in my village.
