An ex-marine who lost his bracelet in a taxi got the jewellery back after the Glasgow Times stepped in.

As we reported last week, Robert Murdoch, who works for East Dunbartonshire TOA, found the item in his car after dropping off a customer.

Recognising its sentimental value, he encouraged anyone who recognised it to get in touch.

A few days later, David Devenney got in touch with us after he recognised his bracelet.

Now running a veterans' support group, the ex-marine was delighted that it was found.

He said: "I had a great reunion both with Robert and my bracelet today when he visited Community Veterans Support both to return the bracelet and have lunch.

"I was intrigued to hear that the magnetic clasp of the bracelet had attached itself to the taxi door handle and, even after numerous other hires, it was still attached when Robert discovered it the next day. 

"It's a great story and I am profoundly happy that Robert was kind enough to take the trouble to track me down. The bracelet is only of limited cash value but its emotional and sentimental value is priceless."
