A Heacham primary school pupil who uncovered an ancient wild boar skull on a beach will be appearing on the One Show tonight (Tuesday, May 20).

Nathan Welham is on his way to London to join presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones for the 7pm BBC1 show.

He is also taking along the skull which he found during a family walk in Old Hunstanton two years ago.

Experts at Lynn Museum verified that the bone is between 7,000 and 10,000 years old and dates back to the late Ice Age when Britain was joined to mainland Europe.

The skull belonged to a young boar and still has its teeth and tusks.
