Police in Australia are looking for the owner of a suitcase "full of money" which was left at an Italian restaurant in Sydney by a mystery customer.

Ten Network television reported that the suitcase left at Cafe Marco contained about one million Australian dollars (£631,000) in 50-dollar notes.

But police would only describe the contents as "a significant amount of cash".

Detective Inspector Ian Pryde told reporters a man aged around 30, who was wearing surfing shorts and a vest, carried the suitcase into the cafe. He then "seemed to get spooked" and left without the money.
