According to hotel managers, around 2.5 million-pound million worth of items are left behind each year.

They say that phone chargers and underwear are the most-recovered things.

They have revealed that, each year, hotel staff find about 42,000 phone chargers worth around 630,000 pounds; 40,000 items of underwear worth around 200,000 pounds; 14,000 toothbrushes worth around 21,000 pounds; 11,500 pairs of glasses worth around 1.15 million pounds; and 5,000 hair straighteners worth around 500,000 pounds.

"Most items are not re-claimed and after six months we donate anything of value to local charities," Bednall added. (ANI)
