Orchestral musicians champion a lost cause


To highlight the ongoing issue of passengers being careless with their possession­s, East Midlands Trains has launched a campaign called ‘Cello, is it me you’re looking for?’, fronted by the Royal Philharmon­ic Orchestra. Items to have made their way into the company’s lost property o ce over the last year include a veritable array of mobile phones, wallets and umbrellas, plus a lifesize cut-out of Donald Trump, a six-foot inflatable cactus, Star Trek outfits and – hence the RPO’S involvemen­t – enough instrument­s to equip half a symphony orchestra. We understand that the majority of abandoned violas go unclaimed.
