The Babbacombe Smuggler was yesterday unveiled as Leonarda Daventry. Her contraband was caviar smuggled from passing Russian ships and sold at an enormous profit to local hotels and restaurants.
Unfortunately Leonarda gave herself away by serving the caviar at her parties and by painting a scene that blatantly incriminated an innocent person.
Although initially under suspicion the other Cliff Railway passengers that night turned out to have innocent explanations for being there.
Percy Wallett made the arrest and thanks all concerned for their assistance in questioning the suspects and reporting all findings to him.
