Gold in a Tank – level 2

20-07-2021 15:00

A military lover bought a tank on the internet. He paid £30,000. He and his mechanic repaired the tank. They were afraid that there were guns inside it. When they opened it, they found gold. They found £2 million in gold inside.

The man called the police. The police took the gold away for investigation and gave him a receipt.

People think that Iraqi soldiers stole the gold when they attacked Kuwait in 1990.

Difficult words: investigation (study), receipt (a paper confirming that he found it), steal (take without asking).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
