Transport for London Lost Property Office is located in Baker Street, central London. You would be amazed what items have been left behind on buses, trains and in taxis. Why last year alone 246,241 items of belongings were handed in. In total there are more than 51,000 books, 12,000 umbrellas and 35,000 articles of clothing. There are also 29,000 valuables such as purses, wallets and cameras and cash, 5,000 pieces of jewellery, 27,000 phones, several computers, shopping trolleys, 11,000 sets of keys and even someone’s ashes. Boy there must be a hell of a lot of absent-minded people out there! Someone who once worked there mentioned a collection of over 300 dildos, 14 blow-up dolls and a trigger for a nuclear bomb that still had four years left to run on the warranty, but I think you can take that particular revelation with a pinch of…plutonium!
