Postie digs up old bag

The Weekend Post - - World -

WHEN An­gela Di­mond had her hand­bag snatched at a rail­way sta­tion in Hert­ford­shire in 1980, she hoped po­lice might catch the mug­ger and re­turn it.

But when of­fi­cers con­firmed they couldn’t find the thief, she gave up hope.

Roll for­ward nearly 40 years and she had a knock at the door from a post­man.

Mike Iz­zard, 45, was plant­ing daf­fodil bulbs by a dis­used rail­way sta­tion when he dug out an old half­penny coin, the bag, Ms Di­mond’s ID and a front door key.

He posted the find on so­cial me­dia and found the owner.
