A runner has lost his wedding ring during a 62-mile (100km) Jurassic Coast Ultra Challenges race.

Jonathan Haynes, who ran the distance in 16 hours and 42 minutes, believes he lost the ring when he fell on the descent at West Bay cliffs.

The runner had moved the ring from his ring finger to his little finger after his finger had started to swell up.

He lost it during the night whilst there was torrential rain so he could not search for it.

"I would be immensely grateful for its return," Mr Haynes said.

The original Twitter post about the lost ring has gained lots of attraction from people desperate to help.

One of those includes Bournemouth Detecting Club & Free Recovery Service who help reunite people with all sorts of lost goods.

It is hoping to send someone along the cliff path to search and return the wedding ring to Mr Haynes.

Darren Wiles, a member of the club, said searches can go on for hours or weeks, and into the early hours of the morning.

Mr Haynes, and his wife, Helen Lewis, said they were "not holding out much hope" of it being found.
