When planting trees in the centre of Brandon one councillor made an exciting discovery.
Victor Lukaniuk, who is both a town and district councillor, found what he believes is a domestic axe head dating from the Neolithic Era - or New Stone Age.
He said: 'We were planting some trees as part of Brandon in Bloom and lo and behold I found this axe.
'I haven't had it verified yet but I am pretty sure it is Neolithic. I will take it to get verified by the Suffolk County Council archeological group and they give you a certificate.'
Mr Lukaniuk said it is not the first discovery he has made in the area.
