A WOMAN demonstrated her good nature by handing in a “substantial” amount of bank notes she found lying in the street.

The bizarre find occurred in Sudbury town centre on Monday but officers have asked the exact details of the incident remain undisclosed so they may be able to return it to its rightful owner.

The woman who made the find, from the Sudbury area, has asked to remain anonymous and said she just felt she was doing the right thing by handing it all in.

“I must admit I did a double take when I saw it as it was actually starting to blow around a bit,” she said. “You never know who is going to get hold of it.

“At the end of the day I wish I had never picked it up. I just hope someone genuine claims it as it is a substantial amount of money.”

Lisa McGrann, a spokeswoman for Suffolk police, said there are believed to be no suspicious circumstances surrounding the money.

“This was a substantial amount of money lost in the street and I'm sure the loser will be very grateful to the person who handed it in.

“If you believe this is your money, please come to Sudbury Police Station where you will be asked questions to establish that the cash is yours,” she said.

If police are not convinced they have found the correct owner of the money within 28 days they have said the cash will be offered to the finder.
