Matthew (11) and his friends rode down to the beach after school to play and he came home with "something very important Mum"

Indeed it was, he'd found someone's passport laying on the beach! What a good boy for bringing it back safely, i called the emergency contact who is the lads grandmother, who called her daughter, who called me to say her son would collect it this evening and she doesn't know "what on earth is he doing taking it out and about anyway"

A word of warning, if you are ever unfortunate enough to lose your passport and somebody hands it in at a police station they have to send it back to the passport office and you will have to apply for a new one.
