A devastated widow has appeal to Herald readers in the hope she can be reunited with her lost wedding ring.

Helen Goodall, whose husband Ron died 11 years ago, realised her gold wedding band, which is about 1cm wide with an engraving similar to ‘///’, was missing on Monday morning at about 9.15am.

She believes it could have possibly slipped off her finger in the Woolbrook Road area, between St Francis Church and Sidmouth Primary School.

Helen, whose plea has been shared on Facebook by more than 70 people, said she had retraced her steps from the entire weekend and had even dug up all the bulbs and plants she had put in her garden on Sunday, but to no avail.

“The wheelie bin, kitchen bin and compost bin all have been taken apart, too,” she added.

Helen said she had also been to Waitrose and Wyevale Garden Centre, which had both been notified about the lost ring.

“If anyone has picked it up outside, I would be overjoyed to have it returned,” Helen added.
