Twitter user Harry Mckeown had a productive morning yesterday - bagging himself £50 after a treasure hunt on the social network.

The 25-year-old, of Wakefield, began his day watching Sky News in his dentist’s waiting room, where he watched a report on a new Twitter craze in San Francisco, where an anonymous account uses clues to lead residents to envelopes stuffed with cash.

Harry immediately followed the @Hiddencash account and then realised there was a @HiddenCash_UK account, which had no followers yet and hadn’t Tweeted.

As the electrician went about his morning he then saw the @HiddenCash_UK account had Tweeted - and indicated cash had been hidden in Leeds.

The picture, and clue: “Robbie Williams would approve! #salty” led Harry to a find an envelope containing £50 behind a grit bin in Millennium Square. He said: “I was quite shocked. I thought it would be a wind-up, with someone sitting in a cafe nearby, laughing. It was a nice little treat on a Wednesday morning.”

Balthazar the Blue Great Dane weighs  15 STONE and is seven-foot long, the size of a baby elephant. Shocked vets at a practice in Bilborough believe he could even be a contender for the heaviest dog in the country. See News Team story NTIDOG; Meet Britain's heaviest dog - a seven-foot Great Dane who weighs the same as a baby ELEPHANT. Five-year-old Balthazar stunned his owners when he tipped the scales at more than 15 STONE during a recent trip to the vets. The Blue Great Dane measures a whopping 3ft 3in (1m) from his paw to his shoulder but is 7ft (2.1m) from his nose to his tail. Owners Vinnie, 46, and Dixie Monte-Irvine, 39, were shocked when they took Balthazar to the vets last week and the scales clocked a whopping 15st 6lb (99.3kg). The gigantic Great Dane lives with Vinnie and Dixie and their three children Francesca, 11, Gloria, four, and two-year-old Tyrion at their detached home in Gedling, Nottingham.
