Ashes left on Bristol bus claimed

The owner of ashes that were left on a bus in Bristol has come forward to claim them.

Bus company First had appealed for the owner to get in touch after the small gold container, with a middle-aged man's picture on the front, was found on 26 August.

A spokeswoman said a woman had contacted the company earlier after her friend saw TV coverage of the appeal.

The ashes belonged to the woman's late husband, she added.

The company would reunite her with the container as soon as possible, the spokeswoman said.
