'Wow !':Couple who found gold treasure inside piano

A couple from Shropshire have been describing how gold coins worth a fortune were found inside a piano they donated to a local school.

Graham and Meg Hemmings from Bishops Castle say they had no idea how the money had come to be inside the piano, which was in their home for 33 years.

The Hoard of Sovereigns - said to be the biggest of its kind - was discovered by piano tuner Martin Backhouse. Today, a coroner ruled the gold is treasure because they don't know who hid it.
