    Like Ned said, these will be illegal to have in your possession if you don't have a shotgun certificate. If you left them in situ where you found them, maybe informing the police would be the best idea as it is rather unusual that they have been dumped in such a manner. But if you took them home, and are intending to take them into the station yourself it honestly wouldn't surprise me if the police tried to charge you with illegal possession despite you doing the right thing. I've heard of it happening before.

    Thanks

    I wouldn't like to stick one in a shotgun to see what happens, I would do as Ned advises and put them at the bottom of a deep hole.

    They look like regular off the shelf cartridges which begs the question - why are they in a briefcase at the bottom of a pool of water?

    I've never felt the need to keep mine in such a way. Maybe thrown there by someone not wishing the Old Bill to catch them in possession?

    Make sure you don't wake up with an equine body part on your pillow!

    That's not what I said Danny, it's NOT illegal to be in possession of shotgun cartridges without a certificate, you just cannot buy them unless you are licensed.

    Maybe a poacher dumped them there (or somebody stole them, changed their mind and dumped them).

    Could you pick up some of the shells and show us, pls?

    My bet is Dad/Grandad croaks, son/grandson finds cartridges in house and not knowing better bricks it, takes case out under cover of darkness on a cold, windy night, and dumps them in the nearest brook. Then back home for tea and medals.

    Just re-read what you said, my inbuilt auto correct of what I thought the law was must have kicked in! :P Unusual that you're able to own them without a certificate. Is there any reason behind such a law?

    Thanks
