A wallet containing more than £1,000 in cash was lost in a DIY shop - prompting police to appeal to identify two people who may have found it. 

The wallet, containing up to £1,100, is thought to have been dropped at building merchants Smith Bros on Cooke Road in Lowestoft on Wednesday, June 9.

It is believed to have happened at some point between 1pm and 1.20pm.

The owner of the wallet told police he initially thought he had left home without it, but then realised he may have dropped it in the shop.

And he was then subsequently unable to find it, leading police to believe it had been taken.
