Sleep tight

Since things went a bit t*ts up in the economy the old chestnut “you’re safer keeping your money under your bed” has been widely touted.

However, it seems this might not be the case. Times are hard and burglaries are on the increase as despair sets in, so sticking your life savings under the mattress could be as secure as giving a thief your pin number.
