Magnet fishing revealed guns

Published: Monday, 16 July 2018

MAGNET fishing in the canals seems to have become a craze, but paid-off for Paul and Marie Price.

The two were magnet fishing on the Grand Union Canal at Warwick and dragged out a cache of WW2 arms, Alan Tilbury reports.

Eight guns

Altogether there were eight guns including revolvers and rifles that had been broken-up before being dumped in the canal.

Like many others, they saw a video about magnet fishing on the internet, paid out ¬£90 for  a magnet and line then took to the canals most week-ends with the hope, declares Paul, 'of finding buried treasure'!
