A 66-year-old man has been praised by police after he found €18,000 on the street and handed it in.

The man came across the cash in a bag on a street in Stuttgart on Monday at 12.15pm and headed straight to the police station with it.

Later on that day a 33-year-old tradesman phoned to say he had lost €18,000.

He had left the bag with the money inside on the roof of his car and drove off without realizing he had lost the cash. 

Police described the 66-year-old man as an "honest finder".
