With student accommodation in Sunderland and Carlisle we thought we’d seen it all when it comes to strange items left by students at the end of the summer term: never-to-be-studied-again course books, threadbare furniture seemingly salvaged from the local skip, fridges filled with food in various stages of decomposition and enough traffic cones to mark out a one mile stretch of motorway works. Of course, as responsible landlords we don’t condone any such behaviour on the grounds of basic hygiene, health and safety or (in the case of the books) the potential for exam resits!
Admittedly, though we have all left places in a bit of hurry and in the panic things do get left behind. That said, the latest Travelodge list of 2015 lost property raised even our eyebrows – here are the highlights:

Who knows who you might meet in the hotel bar?
Must have decided to go home in the Lamborghini.
