A grandmother who was left behind at a Travelodge hotel has made it onto the chain's list of the most unusual lost-and-found items of 2022.

A spokesperson for Travelodge said the elderly woman – called Gladys – was with three generations of her family staying overnight at the hotel in Keighley before a wedding in Manchester.

But in the morning rush to get ready her relatives managed to leave her behind.

The spokesperson said: "In all the confusion the grandsons forgot to take their beloved grandmother.

"Luckily the hotel team managed to get Gladys in a taxi and she arrived at the wedding in time for the ceremony."

A collection of beach stones individually laid out to spell "Will you marry me?" was also left in the Scarborough hotel.
