Any idea what this is?

WE’RE looking for readers’ help in identifying an unusual object found in Newton Stewart.

A dog walker came across a bullet-shaped metal item, which fits in a palm, at the bottom of the road down to Riverside Industrial Estate last week and assumed it belonged to stonemason John McKenzie, who moved into the yard recently.

However, John’s team drew a blank and said it was nothing they would use. The dog walker, concerned a lorry could flip the item up in passing and injure someone, picked it up and is now asking for your help to pin down its origins.

Do you recognise it? Contact us on 01671 404766 or email editorial@gallowaygazette.com with information.
