POLICE in Spain were called in to recover €250,000 which had been abandoned on the hard shoulder of a busy Spanish motorway.
Guardia Civil officers received the call from an unnamed member of the public who discovered several bank notes scattered across the side the A-4 motorway at Tembleque in Toledo which connects Madrid to Andalucia.
The abandoned euros were safeguarded by the Guardia Civil and taken to a bank to be counted.
It later emerged, the collected notes included counterfeit €100 and €50 notes.
However, the total amount of legal tender gathered by the officers totalled €234,890.
The money remains in police custody while they conduct a thorough investigation into where the money came from.
