Stephen Morris forgot to pick up his handmade David Tecchler violin as he left the London to Orpington service at Penge East last Tuesday night. [...] The recently restored violin was in a white case when Morris left it on the train, which departed from Victoria at 11.58pm. Inside, it is marked with Tecchler’s name. Morris reported it to lost luggage and police, but no one had handed it in.
