We went to visit our son in Leeds over the weekend, we arrive late on Friday night and headed for a busy Italian Restaurant for supper around 10.30. When we finished there was only one other table occupied.
After the 5 minute walk back to the hotel I realised I'd left little bag with above mentioned on the floor by the table. I rushed back, everyone had left except the staff, and the bag was gone.
They were very apologetic and very concerned, but they said that the party of 12 at the next table were regular and trusted customers (they certainly looked okay, if rather well lubricated), and that the staff were above suspicion.
Woke up early on Saturday with a hangover and big regret. I went back to the restaurant, and they were not hopeful, the manager said that he couldn't really ring up the people on the next table and accuse them of theft. Police were uninterested (£6000 and they're uninterested )
The only consolation was that I'd taken 2nd body and WATE out of the bag before we went out . . . I had left the frankenfinder in there though.
