Police are appealing for information in a bid to trace the owner of an unusual box.

On Friday, November 21 a box was handed in to police at Peartree police station.

The box is an unusual design and once would have had a padlock to secure it, inside an old curtain was found.

Officers have reason to believe that the box may be linked to an ongoing investigation, which is why an appeal is being issued to find out more about it.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Chris Taylor at Peartree and Normanton Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.
