When Marc Oakland volunteered to clear dumped trash from a pond in Beaulieu, Hampshire, England, he didn’t expect to find organisms from the planet Skaro amongst the rubbish:
The 42-year-old said: "I’d just shifted a tree branch with my foot when I noticed something dark and round slowly coming up to the surface. I got the shock of my life when a Dalek head bobbed up right in front of me.
"It must have been down there for some time because it was covered in mould and water weed, and had quite a bit of damage. One of the dome lights was smashed, but the eye-stalk was intact and the head and neck stayed in one piece as I carefully lifted it out."
It’s probably a lost prop from when the BBC shot an episode of Doctor Who back in the 1980s: Link (Photo: Solent)
