A samurai sword, a prosthetic arm and a coffin are just some of the bizarre items left behind on the capital's public transport system. The vast treasure chest of weird and wonderful items was unveiled at Transport for London's Lost Property Office.
The basement in Baker Street, central London, is celebrating 75 years of collecting items mislaid on overground and Tube trains, buses, cabs and coaches. And now they are showcasing the forgotten finds, including a stuffed fox, a puffer fish, a lawnmower, a park bench, WWII gas masks and even a home vasectomy kit.
The staff's fears over the contents of the coffin lessened when its "owner" was tracked down, who revealed it was used for theatrical purposes only. In fact, the office enjoys a very successful hit rate at finding the lost items' forgetful LPO's office manager Julie Haley said reuniting two urns of ashes with the relatives of the deceased was "particularly heart-warming". "It was an emotional moment for all of us. Having said that, all items are important to their owners and returning even the smallest of items can make a big difference," she said.
A pair of breast implants was also successfully returned.
However, the toothless man who came in one day asking for his dentures was less fortunate. He brought back what he had identified as his own set a few hours later, complaining of "rubbing".
