HR botches redundancy so chap scores year-long paid holiday

I left a job in 2000 and had accrued about 20 days holidays, for which I was to be paid.

I realised that if the 20 days were all paid in a single pay packet I'd pay astronomical tax, so I asked for the holiday pay to be spread equally over the next 3 months.

HR agreed, but they also accidentally continued to pay me a salary for those 3 months.

I left it in a savings avccount for about a year before spending it, certain the mistake would be discovered, but it wasn't.
