An ex-soldier who was blinded in one eye after being shot by a sniper during the Iraq war is hoping to track down his lost glass eye collection -- worth just over £2,000.

Brave Simon Brown, 39, misplaced the "sentimental" collection while on a Virgin Train from Leeds to London -- during one of six trips made in December.

The brown tupperware box contains 16 glass eyes of varying designs, including a Union Flag, Yorkshire White Rose, and a dartboard which cost around £150 each.
