Do you remember the mysterious disappearance of the estate agent Suzy Lamplugh? and the police appeal for a 'Mr Kipper'? The name was claimed to be that of the person she was going to meet. A few years back, a couple of friends and I met up with a retired Fleet Street journalist in Newport (Pembs); he said to us, "Do you remember Suzy Lamplugh, and how the police are looking for a Mr Kipper?" We said we did. "Well", he continued, her family have holidayed down here for years, they have a holiday home, "Mr Kipper, is the name of their boat!"

I mentioned this at a Probe talk a few years back, and a former police intelligence officer approached me afterwards. He confirmed that 'they' knew it was the name of the family's boat but could not understand why the police were continuing to appeal for info on Mr Kipper.

She vanished on 28th July 1986, 3 days before the eve of the fire and light festival of Lughnasadh (Lamp - Lugh).

The Suzy Lamplugh Trust came out of this.

Police are still appealing for information on 'Mr Kipper'.
