Honest UK taxi driver returns $50K to passenger

April 25th, 2011 - 6:27 pm ICT by ANI  

Nigel Lipscombe, 54, discovered bundles of cash - worth 30,000 pounds- stuffed inside a rucksack abandoned on the backseat after dropping off a Middle Eastern businessman in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, reports the Daily Mail.

But instead of pocketing the cash, he drove his taxi straight to the city’s police station.

The businessman, who was there to report to police that he had lost the cash, was overjoyed to get his fortune back.

Lipscombe handed back the money, then gave the Arab businessman a lift to a local pub to celebrate - and even pocketed a 500-dollars tip.

“I wouldn’t have kept it. I’ve always been an honest man. I wouldn’t do it if it was a million pounds,” said Lipscombe. (ANI)
