.22 bullet found in Fossgate, York

York Press: A picture of the bullet A picture of the bullet

A STARTLED man has told how he found a bullet lying in a York city-centre street.

Tim Stark said he was unloading items into the MOR Music store where he works in Fossgate yesterday morning when he spotted what he believed to be a live .22 bullet gleaming in a puddle.

He said he immediately called police, who came and took it away.

“I have no idea what it was doing there,” he said.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said the bullet had been put into safe storage, and CID had confirmed it was not thought to be connected with any incident currently under investigation.

He asked anyone with any information about the bullet and how it came to be in Fossgate to phone the force on 0845 60 60 47.

The police were called for this?? what on earth is England coming to?.. Go through seldom used drawers, button boxes and whatever, you will probably find old 22 bullets and 12bore shells in many houses.. There are many thousands of 22 rifles around York I have no doubt, and someone dropped a bullet when getting their hankie out or some such.

Well done that man from the music shop! Where else would one responsibly dispose of a 'live round'?? The bin? I think the right action was taken, if I had any live ammunition in my drawers I would jolly well ask the police to dispose of it!

I've got a dangerous live weapon in my drawers. I't good that he called Police... (I'm being sarcastic of course!). I'm surprised the whole street wasn't cordoned off as a 'terrorist incident'. Total over-reation by a do-gooder and a busybody. Plus, as previously mentioned: If it wasn't for the photo, I'd have never known what a bullet looked like...

Is Tim Stark the wannabe news-hound at The Press?? one minute he's finding bullets, next he's taking pictures of an apparent cycling protest in front of a bus round the corner....I hope the cycling incident wasn't an organised event!!
