Man leaves £180k violin on train

A £10,000 reward is being offered for the return of a valuable 17th Century violin which was left on a train.

Robert Napier, from Wiltshire, had just had the 1698 Venice-made Goffriller valued by a London dealer at £180,000. He got off a Paddington to Taunton train at Bedwyn on 29 January with the family heirloom still on board.

“It was just one of those terrible moments when I realised, as the train was steaming off, that I had left it on the train,” he said.

That is going to be an expensive …music trip!
