Residents rush to get burst safe cash


Local residents rushed around a Belgian town to grab some euros after a safe burst open.

Money flew around in Zedelgem, northwest Belgium, after it was accidentally released from a safe while a gang of robbers was being chased by police.

But the authorities are asking for the money to be returned to them in a postbox on the edge of town after they only recovered half the cash.

One woman was seen sweeping up money with a broom.
