Two young girls carried out their good deed for the day after they helped return a lost wallet to its owner in Sutton.

Debbie Saberton’s husband lost his wallet in Sutton on Sunday (July 11) and never expected to see it again.

Shockingly, two young girls handed it in to the One-Stop, where Debbie’s husband is a regular, and saved the day. 

Abbie and Emily-Jane, who both attend Sutton Primary School, found the wallet and wanted to make sure it was delivered back to its owner. 

Debbie said: “They’re an inspiration to other people.
