A 90-year-old has found her late husband's wedding ring under an apple tree – 35 years after he lost it in their garden.
Ann Kendrick says Peter, who passed away 22 years ago, lost his band while working in their back garden in Looe, Cornwall, in 1987.
"I suppose it must have popped out of his pocket and we never saw it again," she says.
"We thought, "Oh well, never mind!"
The amazed mother-of-seven discovered the ring in the couple's garden on Saturday (23 April) when she was clearing around the base of an apple tree and pulled at a tuft of grass.
Thrilled to discover the ring after more than three decades without it, she says her husband would have been "as surprised as her".
"It didn't look at all like a wedding ring – it looked like a dirty piece of bent metal," Kendrick told the BBC.
"I looked at it and thought, 'No, it couldn't be'. I was really quite excited.
"When I was telling a friend about it I got a bit choked up."

Her son, Bob Kendrick, 57, runs a restaurant near his home in Dartmouth, Devon.
"Mum was very emotional and over the moon," he says. "It wasn't the first thing that went missing – he used to lose all sorts of things.''
Mrs Kendrick says she will get the ring repaired and wear it as a necklace in memory of her late husband, a symbol of her love after all these years.
