Grandfather reunited with wallet he lost 55 years ago

A grandfather has been reunited with a wallet he lost down the side of a bar in the French Alps - 55 years ago.

Bill Leech, 73, was an 18-year-old French Language student at Grenoble University in 1960 when he mislaid the brown leather wallet while drinking in a pub at a ski resort in Chamrousse.

He doesn’t remember losing it but after he went back to the resort and couldn’t find it he shrugged his shoulders and returned to the slopes.

Incredibly, it had fallen down a gap in the counter where it remained untouched for over half a century.
