Sheffield resident Stephen Hirst first complained of an ear ache when he was 14 years of age. Since then he has constantly struggled against severe pain in his ear and was partially deaf. Hirst revealed that the pain was excruciating and was partly responsible for him losing his job as a miner.

The father of two then decided to make a last attempt in trying to get cured by taking an appointment at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. A nurse at the hospital then pulled out the tooth using tweezers before handing it over to a shocked Hirst.

"She didn't say anything at first, she just stood there looking amazed. Then she said to me: 'Have you lost any teeth lately?' I said I'd not had any teeth in my head for years. The nurse said she couldn't believe what she had found in my ear and showed me the tooth. She said in 20 years she's never seen anything like it", he added.
