Where would you find a CPR dummy, a 1960s wedding album and an entire team’s football kit? Aylesbury Travelodge’s lost and found, of course.

Travelodge has today revealed some of the more unusual items left behind in its 500 hotels across the country during the last year.

Some of the booty that has been left behind in the budget hotel in Exchange Street includes:

> Two unwrapped Christmas presents

> Golf chipping net

> A tuxedo

> A CPR dummy

> A sports bag containing an entire team’s football kit

> A wedding album from the 1960’s

> A book of handwritten poetry

> A remote control car

> A Trek bike worth £1,000

Across the UK, some of the more bizarre items include a Krypton Digital storm gaming laptop, a prosthetic hand, a love letter written 40 years ago and a pug called Dancer.

Travelodge spokeswoman Shakila Ahmed said: “Our 2014 left behind register also revealed how much smart technology has become a part of our everyday lives, as we have had 12,000 tablets and smartphones left behind in our hotels in the last 12 months.

“This is a significant increase from previous years.

“What is becoming evident after speaking to our customers is that the pace of life has become so fast and we are so eager to get from A to B that valuable possessions are easily being forgotten.”
