Dad-of-three Scott Heeley found 211 silver Roman coins and 69 fragments dating back to the first and second centuries on farmland.

“It’s so exciting – my feet have not touched the floor since,” said the 50-year-old.

“I found an old penny and told my mate Jack ‘this penny will be bring me luck’ and I put it in my pocket.

Moments later my metal detector started beeping and I found three silver coins in a hole.

The detector carried on bleeping so I dug deeper and pulled out loads of silver coins from the hole.”
