This is one that you might need Kleenex for.

Stan Beaton's wife died more than a decade ago – but for years he kept a voicemail recording she'd made, and saved it on his phone, BBC News reports.

But Beaton upgraded his phone last month – and when he did, the voicemail was deleted. Gone forever.

Almost.

News.com.au reports a team of Virgin Mobile engineers worked day and night to retrieve the lost recording. And they did so successfully.

BBC Radio Leeds was with Beaton when he heard the voicemail again for the first time. Watch his reaction int he video above.
