A couple in Lund have made a discovery that has considerably softened the financial blow of buying a new home - and will have house owners everywhere tapping walls in hope.

During renovations on their new house, the owners were surprised to discover a small box concealed in a wall.

When they managed to open it, they found that it contained a number of bank drafts. The find was worth more than one million kronor.

The buyers are now suing the deceased former owner's estate for a reward.

In a summons application submitted to Lund district court the new home owners maintain that they have a right to a reward corresponding to 15 per cent of the bank drafts' value, according to Sydsvenskan and Skånska Dagbladet.
