A stolen violin worth £25k was handed in at a West London rail
station on Wednesday 29 February before being reunited with its
owner, Brodowsky Quartet violinist Catrin Win Morgan.
The instrument, made by Montpellier maker Frédéric Chaudière, was taken from the overhead luggage rack of a London train three weeks ago. A man was caught on CCTV taking the violin and leaving the train with it. The Evening Standard claims it has identified the suspect, who was urged by British Transport Police to turn himself in or face arrest.
Win Morgan said: 'I’m incredibly grateful to everyone who helped ensure the safe recovery of my instrument. The past couple of weeks have felt almost like an out-of-body experience, and I’m just looking forward to playing again and not having this huge cloud over me.'
