An NHS psychologist has praised a hero street cleaner who opened every bin on a street in London to help find her phone after it was stolen and dumped there.
Morgan Daniel's phone was taken from her pocket near an Underground station on Saturday night before she tracked it online and saw it was in the Covent Garden area.
She then worked out that it had probably been put in a bin and found a street cleaner who agreed to help her 'open and raid through every bin on the street'.
The worker from Westminster City Council then found her phone at the bottom of one of the bins after it was dumped there by the thief near where it was stolen.
Miss Daniel tweeted a video of the moment she was reunited with her phone, in which she shouts: 'Thank you so much! Oh it was so worth everything, thank you!'

She shared the story to praise the worker, saying: 'I never got his name but this man was an absolute hero and couldn't have done enough to help or comfort me.
'He is responsible for the bins in Covent Garden and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to him. Please pass on the message if possible.'
Miss Daniel is an assistant psychologist at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and a nursing assistant at Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.
The Glasgow native, who is in her early 20s, is also a model with the MOT Models agency and has a master's degree in dementia from University College London.

She tweeted: 'Had my phone stolen from my pocket near a tube station tonight, managed to track it online, suss out where it was and the likely location it had been left in, figured out that it had probably been dumped in a bin nearby and found a member of Westminster Council cleaning staff.
'This man agreed to help me open and raid through every bin on the street until by some miracle he found my phone at the bottom of one of the bins having been dumped there by the thief not far from where it was stolen.
'I never got his name but this man was an absolute hero and couldn't have done enough to help or comfort me, he is responsible for the bins in Covent Garden and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to him. Please pass on the message if possible.'
She said the incident happened at about 10.30pm on Saturday night, adding: 'There really are good people out there.'
In response, Westminster Council tweeted: 'We're delighted you got your phone back, Morgan, and were so sorry to hear about what happened. Our amazing Veolia UK street cleaning colleagues are heroes every day, and this is just another example.'
Councillor James Spencer, Cabinet Member for City Management, told MailOnline: 'We were delighted to hear Morgan was reunited with her phone thanks to some quick thinking from one of our amazing street cleaning team members.
'Our teams do an outstanding job every day, and this is another example of them going above and beyond to help people who visit and live in our city.'
