Trafford council has reported that a wedding ring has been found in a ballot box in Greater Manchester. The council had reportedly discovered a ring someone had left behind after voters took to polling stations in Thursday’s general election. In order to give the ring to the rightful owner, the council has decided to not reveal the features. The owner should phone up and describe the ring’s “distinctive features” in order to claim it, the council told media. It was discovered in a ballot box in Cloverlea Primary School in Hale Barns, south of Manchester.

The owner could not be traced as of yet though the council has publicized the find on social media and the local press. It was found in the Altrincham and Sale West constituency, which was won by the Conservative’s Sir Graham Brady with a vote margin of over 6,000. Liberal Democrats Angela Smith, who defected from Labour to join Change UK, also ran in that constituency. People seemed amused by the incident and have posted several comments assuming someone must have wanted to get rid of the ring or marriage. Some have drawn funny references to Johnson and Brexit as well.
