A fan has been reunited with his false teeth after an exhaustive appeal on social media and local radio.

AFC Wimbledon supporter George is believed to have lost his dentures while celebrating his team's 2-1 win over Exeter City at Kingsmeadow.

The League Two side promptly took to social media after the set of gnashers were found on the terraces with Twitter playing a key role in the search.

The following tweet of the blue box containing the false teeth read: "These dentures were left in the stand on Saturday. Can the power of Twitter reunite a supporter with their teeth?"

Local station Radio Wimbledon joined the campaign and created the hashtag #BringTheChompsHome.

The club's hunt even saw the local paper, The Surrey Comet, issue a plea with calls for the supporter to come forward and claim the gnashers.

Well, the appeal certainly worked. George responded to the appeals and claimed back his false teeth to prompt the following congratulatory message from the club.

"BREAKING NEWS - We have found the owner of the dentures! George and his teeth will be reunited soon. Thank you to everybody who helped #Win"
