An elderly man who did not trust banks lost his life savings today when he left it on top of his car. The man said he used to keep the money under his bed but after his guard dog died he started bringing it to work with him. That is until today when the 68-year-old left the money on top of his vehicle when he left for work. ‘My car is never more than 10ft away from me when I am work so I can keep an eye on it. That morning I went to work at about 6.20am and didn’t realize I had lost it until noon. I went home and checked my bedroom in case I had left it there. Then I realized I must have put it on the roof of my car. Said the man, who went on to say he was gutted, and had worked all his life and had “never been on benefits or asked anyone else for a penny.”
