According to the report in 1966 in the Sunday Telegraph, David Lewis a doctor/surgeon at Bedford General Hospital was present at the funeral.

Mary Lanz was driven to the funeral by her son Ian, who had worked at the Road Research Institute with Valerie Storie and Michael Gregsten.

Ian was reported as saying that he knew Valerie and Michael quite well and told Foot that he had tried to get Val to stop seeing Mike as he thought no good could come of it.

That's news to me, Spitfire, and adds another little nugget of interesting information to the overall picture. May I ask where you discovered this, as neither Woffinden nor Foot mention it?

I wonder if Ian Lanz might be the unknown person who wrote to the Director of the Road Research Laboratory concerning the illicit relationship between Gregsten and Valerie?

I'd assumed, maybe wrongly, that Spitfire was quoting from the report Paul Foot filed in the Sunday Telegraph.

Which I don't think I've seen. Anyone able to post it?

Thanks, Spitfire. I found that very interesting. Do you know of the ''long, devastating attack on the prosecution's case'' written by Dr. Lewis?

Best regards,

Was Dr. Lewis' criticism of the verdict that of a concerned citizen who was dissatisfied with the level of proof, or was it in any way connected to his work as a consultant physician at Bedford General Hospital?
