A roll of carpet, Viagra pill and a bottle of holy water are among items left at airports

A roll of carpet, a Viagra pill and a bottle of holy water are among the list of items left behind by passengers at airports.

A new survey, carried out by Travel Supermarket, has revealed that passengers were most likely to lose their belongings on a Tuesday rather than any other day of the week and the list of unusual items left behind by their owners include an envelope, a fishing rod and a wedding dress.

At Heathrow Airport alone, 26,543 items went missing between May 2015 and May 2016 - an average of 2,212 a month - while a staggering 381 items were lost in one day.

London City airport had the most designer items lost, while a passenger at London Gatwick misplaced a Swarovski pen.

Across the country, an oud - stringed instrument - was abandoned in Edinburgh, a roll of hand-written calligraphy was left behind in Birmingham and a motorbike carburettor was found in Manchester.

Thankfully, 85 per cent of lost property is reunited with its owner within 48 hours and any items left behind after 90 days are auctioned off, and profits sent to charity.
