Termites have managed to munch their way through £119,000 of cash.

The insects were discovered by police at a bank in Barabanki, northern India.

They somehow managed to get to the 10 million rupees (£119,000) despite it being kept in a steel chest.

Police officer Navneet Rana said: "It's a matter of investigation how termites attacked bundles of currency notes stacked in a steel chest."

It is not the first time that the insects have caused this kind of nuisance, having damaged equipment and documents at various banks across India.

Authorities are investigating the matter, after registering a negligence case against bank chiefs.
