WWII medal, rabbit and mother-in-law left behind in Travelodge hotels last year

A WWII medal, deeds to land in the Scottish Highlands and a mother-in-law are among the strangest things left behind in Travelodge hotels last year.

The hotel operator Travelodge has revealed its annual list of items lost and found in its hotels across the UK, which also included a Lionhead rabbit called Bugs Bunny, a Montblanc fountain pen worth £8,000, over £500,000 of share certificates and a 50-year-old teddy bear.

The executive who left behind his bear, called Rupert, sent his PA to personally collect him, as he could not sleep without him.

One superstitious businessman had to take a day's holiday to come back from the Netherlands to collect his rare Montblanc Meisterstück Solitaire Skeleton fountain pen as he said he could not sign any paper work without his lucky pen.

And one new bride left behind her mother-in-law, only realising when she got home that she had forgotten her new family member.

All items left behind not been claimed within three months are donated to local British Heart Foundation charity shops.
