Unnamed Cordant Cleaning staff member who found £300,000 in cash on a London bus handed money on brown envelope to the police.
The cleaner, whose identity hasn’t been disclosed, found the money in a brown envelope while cleaning the public bus, presumably after a forgetful former passenger accidentally left it behind.
Speaking on the various items they find on buses, Cordant boss Guy Pakenham said: ‘More often than not I’m left shocked when my team tell me about the disgusting things they have to get rid of when cleaning buses up and down the UK.
‘But I can only praise their dedication and good humour.’They don’t seem to be fazed by anything. ‘Thankfully our staff are fully trained and equipped to deal with cleaning hazards like these.
‘But we can only urge passengers that next time they defecate on the floor of a bus, or throw up their own false teeth, please remember to take all of your items with you.’
Either way, she handed over the £300,000 to the Met police, where hopefully it will be reunited with its owner – though I’m sure the authorities will have some questions about why the owner was wandering around London with £300,000 in cash.
