Doctors have removed 187 coins from a man's stomach after he attended hospital with " stomach pain ".

The man from Lingsugur, India, swallowed dozens of coins of various denominations before being brought to hospital by his family on Saturday.

Doctors were shocked to find he had swallowed over 1.5kg of the coins over two to three months - leaving him heavily bloated and vomiting.

Pictures show the haul scattered across a table at Hangal Sri Kumareshwar Hospital in Bagalkot city, Karnataka, after being removed in a two hour surgery.

Other images show the coins neatly stored away in a line inside the man's stomach captured by perplexed doctors during an endoscopy.

Dr Eshwar Kalaburgi said: "He was suffering from a psychiatric problem. He had been swallowing these coins for the last two to three months.
