Default How likely is this? Essex drain cleaner strikes gold.

I thought this really deserves sharing for the sheer beauty and almost unbelievable unlikelyhood of this true story. Read as it unfolded...

Last Friday, a drain cleaner working for the local Council was cleaning the drains in Leigh-on-Sea, a suburb of Southend. While he was busy doing that, up popped a watch and would you believe it, it was yellow gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph worth some 21,000 pounds. Honest guy that he is, he handed it in to the police.

Now, and this is where things get absolutely crazy, yesterday while doing the drains in Chalkwell, another suburb of Southend, lo and behold, up popped another watch. Dare I say it? It was, you've guessed it, an even newer model Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph worth 25,000 pounds. He rang his boss and said 'you never believe what I just found'. He handed the second Rolex in to the police.

In the meantime the BBC had gotten wind of the story, sent a camera team to Southend to interview him and for great effect asked him to do a drain during the interview. Would you believe it? While the crew was filming him, this time he dragged up a Frank Fisher yellow gold watch, worth some 10,000 pounds, live on TV.

Hey, talk about a stroke of luck, ey? He's only a young chap, 28, seems a really nice fella. Now, unless the rightful owner(s) claim them within the next 30 days, all three watches will be his. I seriously wish him luck with this one.

Talk about strange life stories.

Feel free to read it on the BBC News website.
This is the article about the first find:

This one about the second:

Unfortunately, the interview with the live find is not online yet. That was really funny, I saw it on the TV earlier.

Yea, nice fello to turn it over to the police, real nice. Granted that those watches belonged to people far more wealthier then him, who did not care about them enough to even attempt to get them out of the drain.
I would probably kept at least one of them.

It's so unusual that three obviously wealthy people would lose their watches in the same way.

I guess you could even say that...the rich...*puts on sunglasses*...are running out of time.







YYYYYYEEEAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

Just a quick update on this. Currently it appears that the police are focussing on the watches having been part of a haul from a break in at some point but so far no takers for them. Hey, three weeks to go and the first one is his. Nice one, I thought he was a very nice soft spoken chap.

Ha guess not. But your post just made me laugh. And I mean crazy is that well, there are weird ppl on this forum. You are one of the few "sane" ones here. I mean, there is a topic of dude who eats his own cum. Not saying that's a bad thing, but not everyone eats their own cum......
