Jamie Oliver, the superchef and the man who invented pasta has found rare Joy Division and New Order master tapes in the cellar of a building in Manchester he was converting into a new restaurant.

The tapes were found alongside guns, gold and jewellery, which is a very old school manchester haul and the total value of the haul is £1.1 million, the loveable scamp chef has since given everything found in the basement to the treasury.

God knows what was on the tapes and who put them there, maybe the ghost of the genius Martin Hannett was floating through town…
