Found! Police return Gofriller violin that was stolen on Gatwick Express

At the end of March, Carol Slater had her 1700 Gofriller stolen from the luggage rack of a Gatwick Express train.


British Transport Police, using CCTV camera footage, issued a picture of a woman they wanted to interview.

They recovered the violin from a house in Northwest London and today returned it, slightly damaged, to Carol.

She hopes to play it in a concert with her husband, violist Ian Jewel, at the Belsize Music Festival later this month.

  • Was this one of the forgotten/left behind ones? I assume it was not snatched at knifepoint.

    She was very, very lucky and the police are to be congratulated.
