THE lost property box at Travelodge hotels in the town has been bulging with bizarre items in the last year as bosses have revealed a golf GPS range finder, an emerald necklace and an anxiety coat for a dog are among the weirdest things left behind by guests.

The list also includes an engine jump starter left at the chain’s Gemini hotel.

Across the UK nearly 10,000 tablets and smartphones have been left in rooms over the last 12 months as well as a set of exclusive trial yoghurt flavours that have not been launched to the public, a £5,000 Vera Wang wedding dress and a pet tarantula called Hercules.

A spokesman confirmed all items which have not been claimed within three months are donated to nearby charity shops.
