A utility company is trying to reunite nine people with their false teeth in time for Christmas. The dentures were all recovered from Severn Trent's sewage treatment works in Monkmoor, Shrewsbury.
The teeth are thought to have been flushed down toilets or dropped down plug-holes. Pictures of the teeth have been posted on the company's website where people can view them and send a message if they recognise them.
Ken Leah, who was a sewer worker in Shrewsbury for about 50 years and now spends time volunteering at the works looking after wildlife habitats, is heading the campaign.
Mr Leah, who said he had seen all manner of rubbish flushed by residents, is hoping the campaign will remind people that items like teeth can block sewers and cause flooding.
