World's most expensive jigsaw
A Chinese man is struggling to piece together thousands of rotted banknotes his late father buried for safe-keeping.
The cash - believed to be worth around £20,000 - had been stashed in the garden of the family home in Jiekeng, eastern China, by Ban Jing's father during the 1980s.
But he didn't tell anyone about the stash until he revealed its location to his son on his deathbed.
"I ran out there and dug it up but it had been shredded by a mouse for a nest, it was damp and mouldy - a real mess," said devastated Ban, 52.
Now he's struck a deal with a local bank which has agreed to try to stick the remaining pieces together and exchange it for new money if he opens an account with them.
"So far we've invested seven hours and recovered around 2,000 notes but there is much more work to do," said a bank spokesman.
