Rail staff left no stone - or seat - unturned in a bid to reunite a lost engagement ring with its owner.

Lucy Holbrook lost her engagement ring on her morning commute from Chalkwell to Fenchurch Street on October 21.

She took to Facebook for help in finding it, and her post went viral with more than 7,000 shares.

She wrote: “I feel sick about it but have a feeling it will find its way back to me.”

And this week it did, after the East Ham depot team searched high and low to find the missing ring behind a heater grid.

A c2c spokeswoman said: “Our whole team at East Ham depot helped in the hunt for Ms Holbrook’s ring, and they literally left no seat unturned as they stripped the carriages out in their search.

“We were delighted that we managed to find the ring and could reunite such a treasured possession with its owner.”
