A ''bored'' man discovered a 120-year-old tunnel underneath his house.



Jake Brown was doing some work on his new home when he realised one of the walls had a different texture.

After further investigation, Jake discovered that there was a huge area underneath the property.

He found items including a paint can and an old newspaper that proved the tunnel had been blocked up for decades.

Jake told the Plymouth Herald newspaper: ''While having a lazy coffee standing outside the basement front door of the property I noticed a patch in the wall of a texture different to the rest.

''Curiosity and a little boredom got the better of me, after which I grabbed a drill and began working pilot viewing holes into the wall.

''Once I had made two holes, one for viewing, one for a torch, I peered through into the dark dusty expanse and realise that it was another cavern of sorts.''
