Default FZ40 Lost - and Found

On Tuesday I cycled to work and then discovered that somewhere over the 21km journey my bag had fallen off the rack on the back of the bike - and yes, my FZ40 was in the bag.

I filed a lost property report with the police on Wednesday; it turns out the bag had been handed in to a police station and today they searched their system for "Panasonic FZ40", found my report, and phoned to say they have my bag with all its contents. I'll pick it up tomorrow - exceedingly grateful for the honest person who went out of their way to hand it in

Wow, what a great story. In most other parts of the world, you would never see it again.
