Over 3,000 hats, scarves or gloves, 1,356 rucksacks, 1,473 mobile phones and 1,163 wallets and credit card holders were mislaid on the Tube in the month of December, according to information provided by Transport for London (TFL) in response to a Freedom of Information request.
Debit and credit cards ranked among the most common things lost on the underground in December, followed by travelcards, mobile phones and rucksacks.
Simon Fleming-Wood, Chief Marketing Officer at Tile said: “We wanted to share the volume of what’s lost on the Tube to show the impact lost belongings have on the everyday Londoner. Given the inconvenience, stress and time associated with losing things and the fact that thousands of items were lost in just one month, we think it’s time to use technology to help us find the things that matter to us most.”
