THE DOG ATE MY PAPER MONEY COLLECTION

Numismatists have to worry about more than just thieves. How about dogs? -Editor

A dog owner has won 450 compensation after his pet pooch chewed a parcel.

Coin collector Bruce Goulborn's spaniel Benny munched 800 worth of rare 5 notes after a bungling postman got a neighbour to sign for his package.

Afterwards, he stuffed the item through Mr Goulborn's letterbox - and it ended up in the dog's mouth.

Yesterday, a court ordered Royal Mail to pay Mr Goulbourn, from Rhyl, Wales, 450 as the damaged notes are now worth only 350.

He said after the case: "Benny thought it was his birthday when the package arrived. He sank his teeth right into it."
