A Hampshire man who found a haul of Anglo Saxon coins with a metal detector in Buckinghamshire will receive a share of £1.3 million.

Paul Coleman discovered more than 5000 ancient coins in a field at Lenborough two years ago.

The Treasure Valuation committee have now announced how much they think the haul's worth.

The money will be split between Mr Coleman and the landowner.

ITV Meridian spoke to Paul Coleman about his find.
