The mystery of the lost locket in Huddersfield has been solved already.

Within an hour of publishing images of pictures in the locket discovered in Huddersfield town centre it was spotted by the couple’s daughter.

And Carol Brown had not even realised she had lost the locket which was so precious to her.

Town fan Walter Duroe found the locket on Southgate near the Crown House building as he was walking to Town’s New Year’s Eve game against Blackburn Rovers.

He said: “As soon as I opened it up I saw two photographs and a lock of hair I knew immediately this must be so special for someone so I want to get to back to them.”

Carol, of Shelley, said: “I was looking at the Examiner website on my iPad and saw the story about the locket and then suddenly realised the photos were of my parents. I couldn’t believe what I was looking at so I went upstairs to find the locket but it wasn’t there.”

Carol had been to an appointment at Crown House on Friday and remembers searching in her bag outside which is when the locket must have tumbled out.

Walter, 61, was brought up in Brackenhall and later lived with wife Gill in Brockholes.
