Robbie Robson's Eclipse Trumpet stolen - WITH UPDATE

UPDATE 8th OCT:  Trumpeter / composer Robbie Robson writes: 

Just an update to say I have my trumpet back! I've posted the news on Facebook, but wanted to say a massive thank you to you for so kindly helping me to spread the word. A fellow trumpeter who I don't know directly spotted it in a bric-a-brac shop in Brixton, and remembered seeing the post on Facebook, so got in contact with me- I went and bought it for £50 today [..] to be honest I'm just happy to have it back. So, relief all round. Thanks again.

ORIGINAL POST 24th SEPT: Trumpeter / composer Robbie Robson writes:

I had my very distinctive trumpet (brown lacquer, old-style rear-tuned Eclipse with a Large Yellow bell) stolen by an unscrupulous mini-cab driver who drove off with my stuff this weekend in Battersea, and I have been trying to find ways of spreading the word, just in case anyone tries to sell it, or sees it somewhere.
