Playground bartering is usually carried out with toys or penny sweets. But negotiations took on a whole new level at a school in Germany this week, when four children stumbled on a bundle of 15,000 Euros.
Two boys and two girls, aged between 10 and 13 found the cash stuffed into a brown envelope on their route to school in Frankfurt.
They shared the money out between friends once they got to school that morning. But one of the pupils, who was worried about the consequences, told a teacher. Police said that collecting the money had proved quite difficult. "Some were quite pleased by their new-found wealth, with many already making plans for what they would spend it on," said a police spokesman.
