An investigation's begun after a child found what police have confirmed to be a 'live' bullet while out playing in the Abington area of Northampton.

The bullet was handed to police on Thursday 17th March by the child's grandparent.

It was found on Bushland Road near to the Co-op. The child had been playing with a number of children in the area and had taken the bullet home.

Police have since spoken to all the other children who had been playing in the area.

They're still appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

"We have checked the bullet that was handed in to us and it is live, which means it is likely that any other bullets taken home by other children will also be live. I want any parent or guardian who has a child who was in Bushland Road on Thursday 17th March to speak to them and ask if they saw any bullets, or if they took any home. Live ammunition can be incredibly dangerous and anyone who finds a bullet should call 101 to report it to us, so we can make arrangements to collect it."
