Huge number of non-reporting artefact hunters in UK

According to Sam Hardy: "there are perhaps around 24,397 licit metal detectorists and 3,500 illicit metal detectorists in England and Wales", which is bad news since the Heritage Action Artefact Erosion Counter assumes 8000 all together - if Sam is right, it means the counrter is ticking away 3.5 times too slowly (which affects those totals pretty significvantly and makes the PAS database look even more like a drop in the ocean).
