A couple in the German state of Lower Saxony made a shocking discovery when they found a handgun in a baby stroller they purchased in an internet auction.

As the woman was cleaning the pram, she found a loaded nine-millimetre pistol in a side pocket, Hamburg police said on Wednesday.

The 39-year-old who sold the item could not explain how the weapon came to be in the stroller. A search of the man's apartment yielded no further information for investigators. The baby stroller had apparently been in the man's cellar for some three years.
