Police look to reunite medieval leg irons with rightful owner

Police are looking to find the owner of some medieval-style leg irons found in a property in Essex.

The discovery occurred when officers were carrying out a search of the premises following two thefts of weapons and armour from the county's museums last month.

On March 13 a theft was carried out at the Maldon Combined Services Museum, and just two days later a similar incident occurred at Stansted Mountfitchet Castle. A 32-year-old man from Takeley was arrested and released on police bail until April 19 pending further enquiries.

Investigating Officer, Pc Red Leeson, said: "During a subsequent search of a residential property in north Essex, we recovered a pair of medieval-style leg irons. We are now looking to identify their rightful owner and reunite them with them.” Anyone who believes they are the rightful owner should contact investigating officers at Saffron Walden police station.
