A prosthetic limb, a Danger Mouse costume and even a Christmas pudding are among the items filed under “baffling” at the Wimbledon tennis tournament’s lost property office.

Wimbledon organisers have made public some of the bizarre items left behind at the All England Club. This year, tennis fans lost 64 umbrellas, 120 straw hats and two different types of crutches.

The list of 950 misplaced items also includes “boxloads” of spectacles and sunglasses, a £20 note and a charm from a bracelet.

If you’ve misplaced an item you can claim your property up to November, when they’re recycled for charity by the Wimbledon Foundation.
