Council workers find £62,000 in cash during Exeter house clear-up
Two council workers who discovered £62,460 of cash in envelopes while clearing a house have been praised for their honesty and integrity.
Exeter City Council workers Steve Yeo and Chris Lawrence came across the cash whilst clearing the carpet and any perishable items from a council house in the Alphington area of Exeter, whose tenant had recently died.
They immediately returned it back to the office where it has been placed in a safe whilst the Council attempts to trace the next of kin.
Council Leader Pete Edwards, said: "Steve and Chris have acted with great honesty and integrity and I have only praise and admiration for them."
