    Philip, I think your instincts are sound, but you are making unsubstantiated assumptions about my credibility with those posting this information. I have known Tom Watson for about three years (more, I think), Jim Treacher for more than three years, have known Stuart Bruce online (though not as well as the previous two) for a few years now...I'm not just some nameless, faceless online entity to them - nor they to me.

    As far as the British Transport Police, you can certainly give them the details of the case (time, place, date) that I gave on my blog and see what they come up with. I have yet to hear from the investigating officer, but as this happened and was reported on a Friday afternoon, I am not sure whether or not to expect to have heard from anyone yet.

    Thanks, Jackie. I am going to reply to this with a new post, above.
