A woman is appealing for the owner of a lost ring her nan found on a bus to come forward.

Edie Davenport, 20, of St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, is hoping that someone will claim back the wedding ring her gran found when she was on a journey home.

She said: “This ring could really mean something to someone and I do wish that the person whose ring it is gets in contact. It would be a shame if they lost it forever.”

Edie’s nan, who is in her 60s, discovered the ring on a No 252 bus in Elm Park, on Sunday, at about 3.30pm. When she sat down, the ring was resting between two seats.

It is a plain gold band that is fairly tarnished and has an inscription inside which includes some initials and a date.

Edie has already been in contact with both bus operator Stagecoach and TfL to see if anyone has reported it missing, but no luck just as yet.

She said: “I am just trying to spread the word so that I can make sure this ring gets home.

“I would be devastated to have lost such a personal and sentimental item and can only imagine how this person must be feeling.”

If the wedding ring belongs to you, then call the Recorder on 020 8477 3719, or email
