A Halifax mum has publicly thanked a good Samaritan who turned in her son's wallet with £400 inside after he lost it.

Philippa took to social media to share her story, saying that her foster son turned 18 last week and went to the Acapulco nightclub to celebrate. There, he lost his wallet with his drivers' licence and almost £400 of birthday money inside.

After realising, they got in contact with the nightclub to ask if anyone had seen it, expecting the worst.
