A tiny stitch that stayed in a man’s head for 52 years has reunited him with the nurse that cared for him – with a little help from the Spenborough Guardian.

Dave Graystock’s barber, Kevin Gavaghan from Up the Junction in Heckmondwike, found the stitch while cutting Dave’s hair before Christmas.

It had been there since 1961, when Dave needed hospital treatment after being run over.
