A long-lost Sherlock Holmes story has been rediscovered more than a hundred years after it was first published.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote the story, titled Sherlock Homes: Discovering the Border Burghs and, by deduction, the Brig Bazaar, in 1904 to raise money for a bridge in Selkirk, Scotland.
It was unearthed by town resident Walter Elliot, 80, who discovered it under a pile of books in his attic.
He believes it may have lain there for almost 50 years.
The 1,300-word tale was printed in a 48-page book of short stories, Book o' the Brig
