Happy end to wallet mishap.

PENSIONER Colin Tewart is full of gratitude towards a stranger who handed in his wallet.

When his wallet slipped out of his back pocket in a busy public car park, he could have been taken to the cleaners.

But it was handed in and the 72-year-old was reunited with it before he even knew it was missing.

Mr Tewart, of Ashing-ton, is disabled and uses walking sticks. Once a week he helps out as a volunteer at the town's Age Concern premises.

He drives there in his Motability car and believes it was as he made his way from the car park to the Age Concern building that his wallet went astray.

He said: "After I got home I got a call from Age Concern to say they had my wallet. It had all my credit cards and about pounds 50 cash.

"Whoever handed it in did not leave their details. It was very kind of them."
