King’s Lynn woman re-united with lost hat she mislaid on bus ride in Felixstowe after Suffolk police appeal

It sparked a police appeal for information. Now a woman has been re-united with her hat after it was blown off her head by a stray gust of wind, as she travelled on an open-topped bus.

Officers launched an appeal on Wednesday, after the hat was handed in at Felixstowe police station.

'Police have a hat that it thought to have blown off the head of a top-deck passenger as the Ipswich Buses open-top vehicle travelled through the town,' it said, appealing for anyone who may have lost a hat to come forward.

Yesterday, the Suffolk force said the woman had been re-united with the hat.

'The lady, from Kings Lynn, visited the police station on the off chance it had been handed in and was then reunited with her hat,' a spokesman said.

No further details of the hat were available - other than it was believed to have been an expensive item.
