'Jigsaw expert' saves £4,000 worth of shredded cash

A Taiwanese forensic expert has worked a full week - day and night - piecing together hundreds of banknotes, after a factory owner put them in a shredder.

Justice ministry official Liu Hui-fen, a handwriting expert, said repairing the notes had taken a lot of patience.

The factory owner, named only as Lin, said he accidentally dumped a plastic bag filled with notes into an industrial scrap machine last month.
