A BURNLEY man is appealing for the return of a new camera he lost at his granddaughter's wedding reception. Mario Parenti, 68, of Hart Street, said: "It was the first time I have used it.

"I want it back because it contains photographs of the wedding of my granddaughter Claire."

Mr Parenti said he lost the Advantix camera at the Inn on the Wharf pub, Manchester Road, Burnley on Saturday night.

He said: "One of my daughters bought it for me as a Christmas present. I put it down while I got some change for the telephone to order a taxi and then forgot to pick it up. I have checked with the pub but no one has handed it in."

Anyone took the silver coloured camera by mistake is asked to return it to the Lancashire Evening Telegraph office at 20 Keirby Walk, Burnley.

Mr Parenti added: "I would very much like it back especially so I can have the photographs of my granddaughter's wedding developed."
