Cash

If you find cash in a shop, near a bank/cashpoint, pub or other premises then this should be handed in to the establishment where it was found. 

Alternatively you should hand the cash in at your nearest police station.

We would actively encourage any member of the public who picks up money that has been dropped to be honest and do the right thing by taking all reasonable steps to try and find the owner.

For small amounts of cash eg.5p, 10p etc. people are advised to use their discretion and may wish to donate their find to a charity box. In these circumstances reuniting the owner with such a small amount would be less likely.

Finders keepers isn't the law

Cash within wallets that are identifiable should be handed into the police as there is a line of enquiry to follow.
