Airport's appeal after passenger's bundle of Euros found

Southampton Airport has put out a final call to whoever lost a large amount of Euros there at the end of last year.

The bundle of several thousand Euros was found at the terminal by a member of staff.

The airport urged the owner of the cash to contact them with details of their flight, how much money was lost and the denominations of the note.

Officials have refused to give out more details of how much money was found and when it was discovered.

The airport said the money would be given to a local charity if no-one came forward by the end of the month. It said that usually happened after lost property was left unclaimed for three months.

Neil Garwood, Southampton Airport, said: "We will always do everything we can to reunite passengers with lost items and we were sure that we would get a call about this money, but no-one has made contact yet.

The airport said it reunited passengers with about 500 lost personal items each year, including false teeth, teddy bears, hats and hearing aids.
