Two people from Saint Albans were arrested on suspicion of digging weapons without permission, and his beloved museum was taken to a farmer\'s field and blown up.

Mr. Tissington was arrested on suspicion of stealing some weapons from land belonging to British cultural heritage, including a war camp six miles from his home.
Military historian Andrew Robertshaw claims that enthusiasts with metal detectors are searching for explosives without permission, putting themselves and others at risk.
\"It\'s clear that this is someone who doesn\'t know what they\'re dealing with,\" he said . \".
\"A year ago, two people were killed while playing with such shells.
\"After the war, the army just buried the weapons underground.
Easy to find, these guys show up and dig it out of the ground and take it away. It’s lunacy.
Mr Tissington and a group of his friends, who claim to be the world war history group, went over the weekend to the British and European battlefields to find weapons hidden in the soil.

A spokesman for the British heritage claimed that Mr. thysdon\'s collection had been blown up, sending a \"clear message\" to others\"
It\'s an illegal metal detector.
But Helen Tissington, the wife of Helen Tissington, 48, claimed that the authorities were \"far above the top \".

He will not risk his life for his hobby.
\"Personally, I have no interest in it at all.
