Greater Anglia have revealed some of the odd items they have had left on their trains - including a front door and an expensive violin.

The following items were all found/handed in on Greater Anglia trains.

A front door

Child? Check. Bag? Check. Phone? Check. Pram? Oh dear.

Prosthetic leg

Guitar/guitar pedal

Valuable painting

Expensive violin
