A family reeled in an unexpected haul while magnet fishing in Salford – a bag full of guns and ammunition. The footage of the shocking moment needs to be seen to be believed:
Douglas Simcock, 39, and his wife Sarah, 29 were magnet fishing with their children on the afternoon of 26 August when they made the surprising discovery near the river Irwell.
A two-sided magnet capable of lifting 300kg was used to fish out the suspicious arsenal which was wrapped in a yellow hi-vis jacket with bricks in it.
The young family found a pump action shotgun, two handguns, and ammunition wrapped up within the strange package. Naturally, they handed the items into the police straight away.
Thankfully, the experience hasn’t dampened the family’s love for magnet fishing which Douglas got into ‘after some seeing some footballer doing it on YouTube’.
