Earlier this month the council issued a plea to reunite owners with their lost possessions, having been handed a passport, three Samsung mobile phones, two Nokia mobile phones, a Vodafone mobile and another mobile phone of an unidentified brand, as well as two purses – one containing £30 in cash and another with a supermarket dividend card.

But this week council staff were left baffled when a new batch of misplaced items were handed in – including six freshly ironed shirts in sealed bags.

A pink purse, a silver purse with the name Mrs Y Stephenson in it, a passport with the name of Mr Evans, an Audi key fob, six more mobile phones and a black umbrella were also recovered.

Anyone who thinks the items may be theirs should call 01473 432063.
