Two dustmen are in the money after finding about £3,500 at the bottom of a refuse chute. But Bill Bridges and Andy Thomas will have to spend days sticking it back together, because each £10 and £20 note is torn in pieces. They found the money in a metal bin at the foot of a seven-storey block of flats in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.

The cash is in more than 8,000 pieces but a bank has said if two-thirds of each note is produced, it will exchange them. The discovery was made in November but no one has claimed the money.
