Thank you for the picture of a fork. Much appreciated. Although I am confused about the prescence of a knife in the aforementioned picture. There is no suggestion that a knife played any part in this attack, or any other cutlery for that matter. Knives get a bad press and probably rightly so, but it's important that to ensure that they don't become embroiled in crimes where they were not even involved. I hope the Argus publishes an unreserved apology to the knife pictured.

Quite right, but at least there wasn't a spoon in the picture as well, that would really have thrown us!
You'd think though that if he had been stabbed with a fork, there would have been four puncture wounds not two?

Was he the Kenyan referred to in an earlier report?

Sussex Police should expect precisley no witnesses to step forward.

Oh, and wouldn't an English fork produce four punctures? Wouldn't it be sinmply delicious if he were stabbed with his own fork?

I am so glad the Argus published a photo of a fork, as I had forgotten what one looks like. May we please now have pictures of cups, saucers and plates for the benefit of those of us who are unfamiliar with them? Oh, and a spoon. What does a spoon look like?
