Staff at a funeral directors in the centre of Falmouth are hoping to reunite a gold cross and chain with its owner after it was found outside its premises in Webber Street.

Kirsty Price, of WJ Angove & Son, contacted The Packet after the piece of jewellery, which has a broken clasp, was handed in to them at 10.30am on New Year’s Eve after it was found on the pavement. “I’ve put a notice in our window, but no-one has enquired,” she said.

Anyone who believes the necklace may be theirs should pop into the funeral directors or call 01326 312576.
