Books back after 35 years.

A library user who returned two books 35 years late has been spared a £5,ooo fine.

As the historical volumes were among 750 books brought back during a fines amnesty in Ipswich, Suffolk, the borrower escaped the usual 70p a week * penalty.

Librarian Chairmian Keeble said "We were excited to see them after all this time."

* I wonder how much the fine would have actually been? You do the maths.
