Purses, wallets and phones must be fairly common when it comes to the lost property section of a bus depot, and you'd think keys, bags and headphones would rank highly too.

But a two-foot drum? That's a new one on to us here at Edinburgh Evening News HQ.

But that's what Lothian bosses found when a bus returned to the depot.

They are now appealing to find its owner, who must have forgotten they had put it down when departing the bus.

Lothian Buses said in a tweet: "This must be the biggest thing left behind on one of our buses this week... A two foot drum! Is it yours?"

It comes on the back of Edinburgh residents debating on the best way to thank Lothian bus drivers when departing their new 100-seater buses.There were plenty of top suggestions, including shouting 'thank you' really loudly, but no-one came up with the idea of banging a drum, possibly until now.

The owner of the drum will have to tell Lothian which bus service the drum was left on in order to reclaim it.

Do you know who owns this drum? If so, let us know on Facebook or Twitter.
