Many detectorists spend years searching for that elusive piece of gold.
A five year-old detectorist from Leeds, Bertie Lawson, found some on one of his first outings after getting a metal detector for Christmas.
He had found the wedding ring of Rupert Denby, that had been lost while helping to put up the community Christmas tree.
The ring was handed into the police station and, from there, reunited with its owner. As his reward, Bertie received a hamper full of chocolates and a note thanking him for being “honest and kind”
