A pet python, a sex toy and a headstone are among the 10 most bizarre items discovered in cars by a repair and servicing company.

Kwik Fit revealed that its technicians have also found a prosthetic hand, a £10,000 engagement ring and even a bird’s nest. The firm has even built a giant “hamster wagon” to celebrate its rescue of a pet rodent from behind a glovebox.

Dhiren Master, marketing director at Kwik Fit, said: “It always raises a smile to hear about the weird and wonderful things our technicians come across on a daily basis. With such a wide customer base, there are no limits to what we could return back to customers next.

“Rescuing Jaffa the hamster was a fantastic example of how our technicians are prepared to go the extra mile for customers to show they care.”
