Sound of the Underground: London Tube Signs Against Terrorism
35 sex aids were left behind by commuters on London's buses, trains and trams, and people came back to collect them. 

The equipment was handed in by other passengers to TfL's Lost Property Office after being discarded by the owner.

The figures show that almost 50 percent of the rightful owners returned to collect their much loved toy.

​Viagra tablets were collected by four passengers in London, who misplaced them while traveling.

TfL has also revealed other items Londoners had lost on public transport, which included 34,362 phones, 45,218 bags, 91,867 books, 12,535 sets of keys, and 10,523 umbrellas.

In total, there were 329,205 items handed in — an increase of seven percent from last year. 

​If you have misplaced something on the London Underground, don't live in silence, contact the lost property office and reclaim your treasured procession.

If the item is not reclaimed, TfL will auction it off, and all proceeds go to charity.
