More news, no ads


Calling all brides and grooms, do you recognise yourself in these photographs? Or maybe you were at the wedding and know the happy couple?

The photos were discovered at Newbury Vehicle Hire's offices in Ampere Road, Newbury, during a clearout.

The unit has been in use by vehicle hire companies for well over a decade, maybe longer, but Newbury Vehicle Hire Ltd took it over in May 2019.

During a bit of a refit recently they finally accessed a cupboard which had been sealed shut.

After forcing it open, the staff found various bits of old paperwork, plus a set of wedding photos, some of which were damaged by damp, but others that remained in good condition.

It is believed this couple are local to Berkshire and the team at Newbury Vehicle Hire took to social media to try to locate them and return the pictures.

They have since found another two sets of wedding photos and are beginning to think these were left behind in a vehicle by a wedding photographer.

Based on the paperwork they have uncovered they think the pictures date back to around 1990.

Antony Turner, from Newbury Vehicle Hire, said: "It was such a surprise to come across the photos of someone’s special day and we felt we had to make the effort to reunite them with the couple."
