T in the Park Lost & Found Property
Published 17 July 2013
Tayside Division’s dedicated T in the Park Lost and Found Property Office is now open at the Barrack Street station in Perth.
An estimated 800 to 1000 items have been collected following the festival and, with Police Scotland being inundated with phone calls and emails, many items have already been returned to their rightful owner.
However, the task of trying to reunite belongings with those who mislaid them is a laborious process and the lost property team will be staffing the office until Thursday, August 22, in a concerted effort to meet that challenge.
Amongst the treasure trove of items recovered or handed in this year was a wedding dress. There were no reports of anyone getting hitched at this year’s T in the Park and the bridal outfit was no doubt donned by a blushing reveller for Fancy Dress Friday.
A large number of mobile phones have also found their way to Lost Property, with expensive Smartphones making up a large proportion of the overall number. iPads, iPods, and digital cameras have also been retrieved.
As ever there is a large amount of clothing that has been trawled in, as well as purses, wallets, driving licences, bank cards and sunglasses.
The process of itemising all recoveries is ongoing, as is dealing with the hundreds of lost property reports that have come in since the weekend.
