AND FINALLY: Missing items

It’s not a brain test, but guess what a microwave, a roll of carpet, a fishing rod, a bottle of holy water, several sets of dentures and a wedding dress have in common.

You can also add a diamond necklace in a brown wooden box, a roll of hand-written calligraphy, a ukulele, a motorbike carburettor and an Arabic string instrument.

Give up? According to Travel Supermarket, these are among more than 26,500 lost-property items left behind by passengers at UK airports, most at Heathrow.

As the company adds: “We’re guessing these weren’t carry-on items.”
