A 310-year-old violin worth £250,000 which was stolen after its owner accidentally left it on a train is now back with the musician.
The antique instrument was left by Stephen Morris on the London Victoria to Orpington service when he got off at Penge East on Tuesday 22 October.
Professional musician Mr Morris had put out an appeal for its safe return and said it was “devastating to lose the instrument I’ve been playing for 20 years”.
Now he has tweeted: “My violin is home safe and sound! Thanks for the overwhelming support x.”
Following last month’s incident, British Transport Police said another man had taken the violin as the train approached Bromley South, and then he boarded a connecting train to St Mary Cray.
Police released a CCTV image of a man they wanted to speak to.
The violin was made by craftsman David Tecchler in 1709.
