They shared photographs on social media of several items they found in the possession of two men in the Lessingham Avenue area of Swinley.

The men were arrested and as police do not believe the items belong to them, they are now appealing for the real owners to come forward.

The haul included golf clubs, a laptop, football boots and other sports kit, watches, keys, bank cards and even fudge.
