A prosthetic leg, a life-sized Spider-Man doll and “enough musical instruments to form a band” have been lost on London’s travel network.

More than 300,000 items were left on the capital’s trains and buses last year as Transport for London received a record haul of missing goods.

Aside from the more peculiar finds, thousands of electronic tablets, umbrellas and wallets were also handed in to TfL’s lost property office – described as a wonder emporium by manager Paul Cowan.

Alongside the daily haul of around 150 mobile phones, the office has received a full-size house carpet, a judge’s wig and a hoard of musical instruments, including drum kits.


(How does anyone forget a drum kit?)
