A man who found a lost cheque worth £4 million to Haribo has been rewarded with the grand total of six packets of sweets.

After his discovery good samaritan Anouar informed the sweets giant about his discovery and was contacted by one of their lawyers.

He was then told him to destroy the cheque and send him a photograph as proof.

Thinking he had saved the company millions Anouar wasn’t best pleased with his reward telling local media: “I thought that was a bit cheap.”

A Haribo spokesperson responded: “Since it was a named cheque, nobody but our company could have redeemed it,” adding “It was our standard package that we send as a thank you.”
