AN American tourist left his wallet, with a cheque for two million US dollars, on a train destined for Madrid.

A maintenance worker found the brown leather wallet when he went to discover why the doors of the Line 5 train wouldn’t close.

The wallet was trapped in the shaft where the sliding door was fitted.

He checked the contents of the wallet to try to find out whom it belonged to and discovered a driving licence, several credit cards and a cheque for two million dollars, all in the name of a man from California.

The police are currently trying to find the owner.
