An actress who starred alongside Christopher Reeve in Superman and Superman 2 has helped a Leicester man find the wallet he accidentally left on a London Underground train carriage.

Randeep Singh, who is 28 and from Leicester, now lives and works in London and accidentally left his wallet on the Tube at Earl's Court, which was later found by Sarah Douglas.

Ms Douglas, who played Ursa in the hit films, first tweeted about the find on Wednesday night.

After hundreds of retweets, friends of Mr Singh, who doesn't use the social media site, got in touch with him directly to let him know it had been found. The wallet was returned earlier today.

Twitter users took to the site to praise Ms Douglas for being a good samaritan:

I can't believe Sarah Douglas aka Kryptonite villainess Ursa from the original Superman movies found my wallet and caused enough of a stir on Twitter to get the message out there and trending. "Cue several friends and many helpful strangers in the Twittersphere who put two and two together, linking my Facebook post about the mishap yesterday to Sarah's tweets and you've got an ending to the saga that would convince the most incredulous of scrooges this xmas... The power of social media indeed!

Mr Singh left a Christmas card and chocolates for Ms Douglas, who wasn't at home when he collected the wallet earlier today.
