Search for lost hard drive with 7500 stored Bitcoins in dump

A Newport man has visited a landfill site in south Wales hoping to find a computer hard drive he threw away which is now worth over £4m or $7.5 million dollars USD (@ $1000/BTC rate).

James Howells’ hard drive contains 7,500 Bitcoins – which is a virtual form of currency for use online. This week, a single Bitcoin’s value hit $1,000 (£613) for the first time, making his collection worth $7.5m (£4.6m).

BBC correspondent Hywel Griffiths spoke with Mr Howells about what happened.
