A BUS driver who found a bag containing €390,000 handed the money over to police, who tracked down the elderly woman who had left her fortune behind.

The Austrian driver, identified by the Vienna transport authority only as Wolfgang R, was inspecting his vehicle at the end of the line when he found the bag in a seat behind the driver's.

"At first I thought it was shopping or medicine," he said. However, when he opened the bag he found a collection of €500 notes staring back at him.

Police in the Austrian capital used a bank deposit slip inside the bag to trace the owner. There was no word on whether the woman had given the honest driver a reward.
