A church in York has been told it can keep about £100,000 in banknotes which were found in a bin bag on its property earlier this year.

The bag was discovered by a local resident in August on land owned by the church of St Thomas with St Maurice and was immediately handed to police.

The church, on Lowther Street, has been awarded the cash by York magistrates.

The money will be spent continuing the work of the church within the local community, the Diocese of York said.
