Recycling staff appeal for lost camera owner
Staff at a recycling plant in Warwickshire may have saved someone from claiming on their camera insurance after finding a device in a skip.
The BBC reports how workers at the site at Princes Drive in Leamington Spa discovered the equipment in a bag.
After sorting through piles of rubbish the HW Martin Waster employees came across the camera and put it to one side.
A collection of photos remain on the memory card including shots of a wedding and 100th birthday party.
It is thought someone may have thrown the camera out accidentally and so it has been kept in case the owner is found.
Group manager at the company Glenn Fleet said: “We are appealing for the owner of this camera to come forward so that we can return it.”
A website entitled ifoundyourcamera.net allows people to upload images discovered on second-hand or lost devices with the hope of reuniting those captured with their pictures.
