In brief

Litter shocker: An American man just wanted to jot down a phone number when he picked up what he thought was litter on a footpath. What Reggie Damone found in Norwich, Connecticut, was an envelope containing a $212,000 cheque. Damone, who receives government-issued food stamps for low-income workers and works at a McDonald’s fast food restaurant, said he did not think twice about trying to cash it. Instead, the 47-year-old took a bus yesterday from his home in Jewett City, Connecticut, to a bank and returned the cheque to the niece of the landlord to whom the cheque was written.

Ecstasy outrage: A senior British police chief has come under attack for claiming the illicit drug ecstasy is safer to take than aspirin. North Wales police chief constable Richard Brunstrom has sparked outrage by making the controversial claim and calling for the legalisation of all drugs, including heroin and cocaine, within a decade.

Pants on fire: A pair of outsize cotton underpants doused in water stopped a family home in Britain from burning down over the New Year holiday. Jenny Marsey’s size 18-20 cotton Marks & Spencer pants, retrieved from a laundry pile, were used by her son to cover a frying pan fire at their home in Hartlepool, north-east England, on Sunday.
