Savvy Cypriots who put all of their savings under the mattress were celebrating today with 100% of their savings still in place. Although the cash is a bit squashed it is eagerly accepted in local shops and petrol stations.
"By simply putting their money under the mattress in their own home it would still be there today " explained a mattress expert.
Reports that sales of these 'magic' mattresses in Spain and Ireland and Greece and Portugal have reached record levels have yet to be confirmed.
Meanwhile sales of the popular game 'Wipeout' are reported to be falling sharply across the eurozone as people seek an escape from their reality.
