Cop cops medal thief

The Sun identifies the guilty  man 
Steve Cairns is a policeman based at St Leonards.  Earlier this month he came third in the Keilder Marathon.

Alas, he was awarded fourth place because another competitor, who had hitched a lift for part of the way in a bus, crossed the line in front of him. Steve didn't believe it, alerted event director Steve Cram and, after the investigation, was today reinstated to his medal position in a special ceremony at Waverley Bridge.

There has been loads of media coverage - such as this BBC article.

The culprit in this story is Rob Sloan.
