Today BEDN bloggers are being encouraged to write about something that’s in the news.
I was going to address my thoughts on this scary clown that has been reported around Lincoln (and other towns), stepping out in front of cars and starring into car windows. I was going to tell you all how much I would scream if I came face to face with an evil looking Ronald McDonald whilst driving around town.
But then I came across this story about £60,000 cash that has been found floating about in a Spalding river.
That’s right, £60k. I wonder where it came from?!

The story hit the news today but the cash was actually discovered on 25th October – I assume since then police have been recovering it and counting it and investigating who it might belong to… I love that the report says police “may carry out a forensic examination of the cash” and apparently the Bank of England may be needed to assist in the counting!
Come on then, let’s speculate! Where do you think this £60k in bank notes came from? Who’s is it? Is it crime money? Or was someone really clumsy with their bulging wallet?! What do you reckon?
PS If you have actual information you should call the police… contact them on 101 quoting incident number 154 of 25th October. They will need evidence of ownership if it’s yours!
