It's draining Rolexes in Southend
The Southend drains are paved with Rolexes. Drain cleaner Aaron Large struck gold when he found four designer watches down a couple of drains in Chalkwell. They're worth around £60,000 and since no-one has claimed them it looks as if he'll become the legal owner. It seems a particularly inept tea-leaf might have stashed the watches down the drain without reckoning on the vigilant Me Large. That's one iffy drain - and police are said to be looking into it.
