A British man said he was left open-mouthed after Spanish authorities returned the false teeth he lost 11 years ago on a drunken night out in Benidorm, the BBC reported on Thursday.
Paul Bishop, 63, lost his teeth in the popular resort town in 2011, when he fell ill while drinking cider and threw up in a trash can.
“As we went to the next bar, my friend turned to me and asked where my teeth were,” he told the broadcaster.
A search proved fruitless, but he said he was “stunned and stunned” when the long-lost dentures turned up at his home in Stalybridge, near Manchester, in the north west of England.
They were found in a Spanish landfill.
“Before you know it, they’ve found my DNA and address from UK archives and put it in the mail,” he added.
Bishop, who was pictured with the errant grinders in a plastic bag, described the return as “incredible”.
