Sunday dinner and an ejection seat among items left in storage rooms

A sunday dinner left in an oven, a samurai sword and a secret designer wardrobe have been revealed as some of the most surprising things Brits have left behind in storage facilities across the UK.

Self-storage provider Space Station surveyed its customers to find out the weird and wonderful items that have been left behind on its premises over the years.

As well as these strange discoveries, it’s also not uncommon for employees to hear unusual requests, with some customers even asking if they can live in their storage container.

Vlatka Lake, marketing manager at Space Station, said: “People use self storage for a variety of reasons and this has turned storage units across the UK into a modern day treasure chest.

“Our research revealed some unexpected and truly remarkable items that have been found in storage units. With the self-storage trend on the rise, the number of unusual items being stored here in the UK is bound to see an increase.

“Here at Space Station we’ll definitely be on the lookout for the next most wonderful and interesting items that come into our units!”
