    I'm giving this a "Bump" as I though someone was going to get a transcript of Richard Whittington-Egan's account?

    I read about this case in a childrens softback book by the Daily Mirror in the 1970s. I believe they reasoned he had fled as he was going bankrupt. They thought the cylinder was part of a pipe or chimney flue. The papers in his pockets had all got stuck together but they managed to seperate some which were bills. I still have the book somewhere

    Hi De Stanbrugg, welcome to Yo.

    I think the story also features in Richard Whittington-Egan's Liverpool Colonnade (1955).

    Here's how it was reported on the front page of the following days Daily Post at the time, quite gruesome that the cylinder was used as a seat for many years with people blissfully unaware of what was inside.
