Hoping to trace owner of photos

POLICE are hoping to find the owners of photographs found in an envelope on a town centre bench.

The photographs are of various family shots, including a scan of a baby and a Christmas card with a photo and names.

They were found in Billingham town centre in October.

Lynne Clarkson, public enquiry assistant at Billingham police station, said: “The photos will no doubt mean a lot to whoever has lost them and we would love to reunite them with their rightful owners.

“The pictures appear to have potentially been taken abroad so may have been sent to family living here in the UK by a friend or relative living abroad.

“If anyone can help we would greatly appreciate them getting in touch with us.”

Anyone who thinks these items may belong to them is asked to contact Billingham Police Station front desk or call (01642) 302410.
