A violin theft with a happy endingNews
The cellist Alison Moncrieff-Kelly was one of the judges at Sevenoaks Young Musician of the Year in southeast England three months ago.
During the competition, she tells slippedisc.com, one of the contestants had her violin, valued at £10,000, stolen from her parents’ car.
The distress of all involved can only be imagined.
Yesterday, Kent Police arrested two men in their mid-30s on suspicion of multiple thefts from vehicles. Both were remanded in custody. The violin was recovered from a specialist store in Oxford and has been reunited with its youthful owner.
