Andy (31) is a consultant. While he was walking back from a night out in Earls Court, Andy spotted a sparkling thing lying into a gutter outside Nando's. Out of curiosity he reached out to check what it was, and to his surprise, he found that it was an expensive diamond ring. He immediately decided that he had to return the ring to its respective owner instead of flogging it. He said online: 'I have lost my phone four or five times and mentioned it on social media. Every time I have had it returned to me – it's like a boomerang.'

Andy said: 'It's a fairy tale ending and shows just how much good social media can do. I feel like I have done my good deed for the year.' After Andy's Facebook campaign, the owner of the ring contacted him, after which Andy took a taxi to meet her and the relative. On his reach, she placed a London Jeweler and a staff verified insurance records before him which proved that the ring belonged to her. Andy added: 'She was overjoyed because she had been upset and doesn't want any attention, but she was very, very pleased to have it back.' This kind gesture by Andy proves that there is humanity restored and honest people like him do exist.
