Workers find buried gold.

A HUGE cache of gold worth millions has been recovered by workers at Ground Zero.

The bullion was in a delivery tunnel under the rubble of the World Trade Centre.

Armed federal agents stood guard as police and firefighters packed two armoured trucks with the load.

It is still unclear as to the exact amount stored under the twin towers before September 11.

But the Toronto-based Bank of Nova Scotia has said its vault alone held more than pounds 166million in gold and silver.

Other companies are believed to have lost untold gold and valuables in the disaster.

As workers inched closer to the gold, authorities began restricting access to the north side of Ground Zero and FBI and Secret Service agents joined cops and firefighters at the site.

Officials finally got to the gold through the tunnel on Tuesday after workers hauled out a 10-wheel truck, several crushed cars and mounds of debris.

No bodies were recovered.
