"The money went flying in the air. I saw all these young lads started grabbing the notes and I thought I’ve got no chance here"

Barry Eastwood went to the bank to withdraw £1000 to pay for his car insurance when he tripped and fell. The money blew out of his hand and he managed to hold on to only £60.

A bunch of teenagers and young people rushed for the money ... and then this happened:

The grandfather of 13, said: 'The money went flying in the air. I saw all these young lads started grabbing the notes and I thought I’ve got no chance here.

'But they brought it all back back - I couldn’t believe it! They were jumping up and catching the notes - it’s a shame no one had a camera.

'There must have been about 20 lads - they were all young lads. I ended up with all the money back bar £20.'

Personally this just reminded me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-nh7xOjkSs&hd=1 and it makes me mad that while the media would have called him out if he had said "it was all these black lads" they won't even though he basically accused all young people of being thieves.
