BBC - Bitcoin: Newport man's plea to find £210m hard drive in tip...

A man who threw away a laptop hard drive containing bitcoin he believes is now worth about £210m wants his council to let him search for it in landfill.

James Howells had 7,500 bitcoins, a virtual currency, on the hard drive, which he mistakenly threw away in 2013.

He said he was willing to donate 25% of the value of the bitcoins to his home city of Newport in south Wales - about £52.5m - if he found the hard drive.

Newport council said excavation was not possible under its licensing permit.

Mr Howells said if he was to recover the hard drive, he would want the money to be put into a "Covid relief fund" for people in Newport to use "no questions asked".

BBC - Oxford's Lamb and Flag pub to close due to pandemic

A historic pub, once frequented by authors JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis and Thomas Hardy, is to close after more than 400 years.

Oxford University's St John's College, which runs the Lamb & Flag in the city centre, said it had suffered because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The pub has been operating on St Giles since 1613, and is due to close on 31 January.

Campaigners said they would oppose any plans to repurpose the building's use.

Its owners said staff at the Grade II-listed pub were placed on furlough in March, and while it reopened in August, it was unable to break even.

Deputy bursar Steve Elston said they were aware the establishment held "an important place in Oxford's history" but that it had been "hard hit by the pandemic".

He added: "Despite the best efforts of the staff and looking at every option to keep it open, the trading figures of the last 12 months have meant that the pub is not currently financially viable.

"Also the college, as a charity, is not allowed to financially support a loss-making business that is not part of its core charitable objectives."

The college said it was looking to secure the 17th Century pub's long-term future.
