A jogger was surprised to find a large decorative sword in the village of Elm. 

It was found by Ciaran Brennan as he started a 10k run near Wales Bank yesterday (12th August).

He handed it into Wisbech Police Station where it has been disposed of safely.

In a post on Facebook Ciaran said he was concerned that if the weapon fell into the wrong hands it could be very dangerous: 

"I was shocked to find that it was the real deal and not a toy.

I'm now doing my bit to get blades off our streets.

I'm shocked that I found such a thing in my village."

Cambridgeshire Police said they were called to reports of a sword at the side of the road.

A spokesperson from the force said:

"We were called at 1.39pm yesterday (August 12) to Begdale Road, Elm, with reports that a man had found a sword at the side of the road.

He was advised to take the weapon, described as a samurai sword, to Wisbech Police Station where it was then disposed of safely."

Anyone who wants to dispose of a knife safely is urged to call 101 or take it to their nearest police station.
