The arrow was found on a farm near Ruthin earlier today (Monday, June 13).

A statement from North Wales Police read: "This afternoon we recovered an arrow from agricultural land situated off the Denbigh Road in Ruthin 

"No animals were injured and at the time of the visit no animals were in the field. We cannot at this stage say when the weapon was fired or why however the use of this type of weapon in this environment does pose a risk.

"Although the arrow does not appear to be suitable for hunting due to its weight and construction, we would still ask people to be aware of this type of behaviour and report any suspicious activity to the Police."
