Chris Burrows, who had been the health and safety manager to the pirates’ weekend said: “On the Monday morning after the event I was asked to help find the wedding ring which had been lost in an orchard at the back of the pub in Rhos-on-Sea.”

He said the orchard had been temporarily renamed for the event.

“I had been given a metal detector a little while ago and I was looking for an reason to use it and this was the perfect opportunity.

"I found the ring within 10 minutes of starting. But to give me a clue I had been given a treasure map by the ring’s owner, Aled Morrow-Powell from Corwen.

"It wasn’t exactly an X marks the spot map, but it did help me narrow down the area.”

He added: “Aled was very grateful to have the ring back, and his wife Rosie was overjoyed. She had been very upset at its loss as they were recently married.”
