Master of the Mint, Sajid Javid, is being held by officers from Scotland Yard this morning, after it was discovered a huge haul of special Brexit celebration 50p coins could not be accounted for.
The commemorative coins should have gone into general circulation on the proposed Brexit day of 31 October last year, but, due to the delay, they were held back.
They should have been melted down for later use, but, for reasons the police have yet to ascertain, were not.
An anonymous worker at the Mint has told police that Mr Javid took personal charge of the coins, and nobody has seen them since.
Detective Chief Superintendent Jack Copper, leading the search for the loot, said:
"Evening, all. I am leading the search for the loot."
Labour's Diane Abbott observed:
"Shocking. That's fifty million pence. Isn't it?"
Sajid Javid is a slimy runt.
