Braintree: Mum's lost purse returned by stranger
A mum's faith in humanity has been restored after a stranger returned her purse containing priceless photos of her late nephew.
Jane Edwards, 44, was devastated after returning home from shopping at Tesco, Market Square, Braintree to find she had lost her wallet.
She returned to the store to search for it, but decided to cancel her cards and contact police when it didn’t turn up.
Ms Edwards who lives on the Goldingham Estate, said: “A few hours after cancelling my cards staff at Tesco telephoned to say a gentleman had handed it in.
“I went back to the store and was so happy to find it still had my photographs in it, my cards and £10 cash I had taken out at the bank.
“The photographs were of my nephew who died nine years ago, I would have been devastated to lose them."
