We have just heard from the violinist Madeleine Mitchell:
So relieved to say I just heard from Krysia (Osostowicz) she has her violin and bows back (the theft having been on her way home after our R3 broadcast pictured above).
How did that happen, Madeleine?
Cash Converters in Streatham! Woman arrested, violin safe!
The violin was stolen outside Brixton tube station yesterday evening while Krysia Osostowicz was unlocking her bike. We are so pleased for her that the agony is over in less than 18 hours.
Thanks to all who helped by spreading the word.
