Southampton Airport left Euros claim deadline passes

The deadline has passed for the owner of a large amount of Euros left at Southampton Airport to come forward.

The bundle of 2,000 Euros was found at the terminal by a member of staff at the end of 2011.

The airport gave the owner of the money until midnight on 31 January to claim it but no-one has come forward.

The bundle of notes will be given to Sophie's Appeal, a charity for children with cancer whose founder works at the airport.

The airport said lost property was usually given to a local charity if it remained unclaimed for three months.

Passengers using the terminal are reunited with about 500 lost personal items each year, including false teeth, teddy bears, hats and hearing aids.
