Motorists discard mobile treasure trove

Loose change worth £14 million is lost in cars every year, recycleyourcar.co.uk has discovered. The website, which helps drivers dispose of their cars responsibly, recycles about 400,000 cars annually and in one year found more than £170,000 in change in these cars. From these figures, and with 32.9 million licensed vehicles in the UK, the site calculated the £14 million loss to motorists. Coins that are found are returned to the Royal Mint.
