Cleaner finds £300,000 cash on London bus and hands it in to police

Everyone dreams of winning the lottery, and for many, finding £300,000 in cash on a bus would feel just like that.

However, one honest cleaner discovered the cash on a London bus and made the admirable decision to hand it in to the Police.

It appears an absent minded passenger left the brown envelope filled with bank notes worth £300,000, which was only discovered when the bus was being cleaned.

Finding the cash must've been a dream compared to some of the items others cleaners have found like an air fryer, soiled nappies, used tampons, false teeth and an animal heart - not to mention the regular nasties of vomit, poo and used pregnancy tests.

The bus company's 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 their staff are fully trained and equipped to deal with cleaning a mess like this!
