Man finds £10,000 shredded notes

£10,000 shredded notes
A street cleaner who found shredded £10 and £20 notes has been told by the authorities that he can exchange them for new ones if he can piece the pieces together. Graham Hill, from Gainsborough, discovered an estimated £10,000 in two bin bags dumped in City Square in Lincoln. They are thought to have been thrown away on the night of May 7.

Lincolnshire Police held the money for six months while an investigation was carried out. But, now as there was no evidence that the money was stolen and no one has claimed the money, Police says that Mr Hill can keep the money. A spokesman for the Bank of England said that Mr Hill will get a reimbursement on the notes that he can put together.
