The article states that it is a lesson for everybody, courtesy of an English furniture retailer, whose name one shall omit to protect her modesty. Do not leave bags at the train station. The heroine was on the way to Wales when, 15 minutes after getting on the train, the penny dropped that she did not have her bag. Thankfully the guard discovered it had been found on the platform, so she thought she would pick it up on her return. Oh no. This is the British railway system. The bag had been taken to a regional lost property office and that was the only place it could be collected from.
