Missing Christmas card cash search at Droylsden tip

A mother who binned her daughter's Christmas gift of £200 thrown out with festive season waste has spoken of her happiness at finding it.

Lisa Towey, form Droylsden, thanked staff at her local recycling plant who had the task of "looking for a needle in a haystack".

Fifteen-year-old Beth's cash was in a card her mother disposed of in a post-Christmas clear out.
