SURPRISE items which have made their way to the lost and found of a budget hotel have been revealed.

A £5,000 saree, a fake wedding cake, a pair of cowboy boots and a business presentation - are all now stored at Travelodge’s Lost & Found office in Slough. The items were left at the hotel in Herschel Street by customers in the last 12 months.

Travelodge said a film script was also left behind at its Heathrow Terminal 5 site. Four Eurostar tickets were also left in Slough.

Shakila Ahmed, spokeswoman said: “With nearly 19 million customers annually staying at our 542 UK Travelodge hotels, for a wide variety of reasons, we do get some interesting items being left behind.

“This year’s inventory list includes a Starchaser space rocket, a WW2 bravery medal, deeds to land in the Scottish Highlands, a pilot’s licence, a mother-in-law and a Lionhead rabbit called Bugs Bunny.

“The running theme our customers do tell us, is that the pace of modern life is so fast that time is of the essence and therefore valuable possessions are easily being forgotten.”

The chain said there was a trend of forgetful brides. One new bride staying at York Central Travelodge left behind her Mother-in- law and only realised when she got home. Another bride staying at Birmingham Bullring left behind her diamond Mangala Sutra, an Indian wedding necklace.
