British Transport Police have cancelled an appeal for information about £5,000 of ‘missing’ camera equipment after discovering the property had been handed in.

British Transport Police (BTP) cancelled the appeal after a bag originally feared stolen from a Peterborough train was found in lost property.

It is believed the man in the pictures we released handed the bag into lost property, and we’d like to thank him for doing so.

BTP had issued the appeal for information this afternoon (Thursday, March 5) about a passenger’s holdall containing a valuable professional camera and other personal items valued at over £5000.

Officers released CCTV images of a man they wanted to speak to at the time, after the goods were lost on board the 5.45 Leeds to Peterborough service on Monday, 2 February.

Since issuing that appeal BTP contacted us to say that although they initially thought the goods had been stolen they were now confident no crime had been committed. Sergeant Becky Fryer said: “We are now confident that no crime was committed. It is believed the man in the pictures we released handed the bag into lost property, and we’d like to thank him for doing so.”
