BARABANKI:  A colony of termites has gorged itself on a diet of money, managing to eat its way through £119,000. The insects were discovered chomping on the cash by police at a bank in Barabanki, northern India. The 10 million rupees (£119,000) had been stored in a steel chest that workers thought was infallible but it turned out they hadn’t planned for an attack from an army of termites. ‘It’s a matter of investigation how termites attacked bundles of currency notes stacked in a steel chest,’

said police officer Navneet Rana.–Metro
