£1000 Reward for a Phone Call

WHEN Stranraer businessman Alan McKenzie answered his phone a couple of weeks ago he never thought the call would cost him £1000.

But the owner of McKenzies' electrical store was only too happy to part with the money. Because at the other end of the line was Englishman Mark Duerden reporting that he had found Alan's Ford Transit van - which had been stolen from outside his Stranraer shop three weeks earlier.

And if Alan was surprised with the news, Mark was nothing short of ecstatic when he discovered his display of good citizenship had earned him a £1000 reward.

"That should take care of Christmas!" remarked the 40-year-old landscape gardener from Burnley.

Mark genuinely knew nothing of the reward that had been put up for the recovery of the six-month old van.
