POLICE in France have revealed an alleged ETA weapons cache has been located in a forest near Bayonne.

A walker reportedly stumbled upon the Basque terrorist group’s haul while searching the area with a metal detector.

He proceeded to dig up two plastic boxes containing detonators and explosives, as well as road maps bearing the ETA symbol, according to a local French radio station.

After being notified of what happened, police cordoned off the area and an investigation has also been launched by the anti-terrorism bureau in Paris.

The spot is located about 30km from Bayonne, where ETA staged a weapons handover in April last year.

The group claimed that they had given up all their weapons in a move towards establishing peace, with ex-French president François Hollande calling it “a decisive step towards the end of Basque separatist terrorism”.
