Where can you find €60,000 in cash, a bag of diamonds, a Rolex watch, the keys to a Porsche, and a book of signed blank cheques? These are all items from the Lost Property department at London City Airport.
The European gateway has published Top Tens of the most unusual and the most common items left at the airport, to encourage people to take extra care of their belongings when they travel. Adult toys, false teeth, a glass eye and an artificial skull all feature on the unusual chart, while the most common items include iPads, mobile phones and laptops. Darren Grover, COO at London City Airport, said: “Because LCY is so close to central London it is popular with business travellers and celebrities, so we see more than our fair share of valuable items left in Departures. “As summer approaches we’ve published the Top Tens to help travellers avoid that stomach-churning feeling you get when you realise you’ve lost something. “I imagine the person who left the €60,000 felt particularly sick at that moment.” The airport’s location so close to central London and its quick check-in times makes it popular with travellers wanting speed and privacy. Customers include members of the royal family, British Prime Ministers, high profile sportspeople, and well-known musicians.
