See SWNS story SWDART: A man who regularly suffered a blocked nose feels like a right sucker after he sneezed out the cause – a toy DART stuck up his nostril for 44 YEARS. Stunned Steve Easton, 51, often had a case of the sniffles or a headache and put it down to hay fever. But his nasal passages are now clear for the first time since he was a toddler after one big blow out last week cleared the problem. He did a massive sneeze and out flew the sucker tip of a toy dart – which had been up his nose since he was a boy.
