Distinctive brass recovered from Bridlington

Police are asking for help to find the owners of a distinctive collection of brass recovered from a property in Bridlington recently.

The brass items were recovered following a recent search of a property in Bridlington. We don't know where the items have come originally from or who the rightful owner or owners are.

With the mining brasses it might be that the items were stolen from a house outside of our area so as many people that share the information the better and we can give them their items back.
