Rubbish collector finds thousands.

“The biggest piece of money is about a 3-cm square... It is a massive jigsaw puzzle,” said a police officer in reference to thousands of shredded £10-and £20-notes that were found by bin man Shaun Hill. Hill, 35, found the money as he was cleaning a street in the main square in Lincoln. The money, estimated to be about £25,000, was in two bin bags. Lincolnshire Police held the money for six months while an investigation was carried out. But no one came forward to claim it and the police have returned it to Mr Hill.
