Samurai Sword Warning

POLICE in Stranraer have sent out a warning after a young girl found the remains of a Samurai sword in an area of grassland in the town.

The sword, which was found in an area of grass at Fairhurst Road, consisted of a handle with three inches of blade still attached. Despite a thorough search the remainder of the blade was not found.

Police stressed that this was an unusual incident but warned youngsters not to touch blades if they find them. A spokesman said:

"The blade seemed to be snapped off and despite a search of the area the rest remains missing.

"We would like to remind the public that such instruments are extremely dangerous and if found by children should not be handled.

"Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the rest of this weapon should contact Stranraer Police Station."
