The destruction of Dundee railway station’s original, much-loved piano is likely to remain a mystery following the effective closure of the police investigation.
British Transport Police (BTP) has confirmed that there will be no further action in the probe into the vandalism which shocked the city.
The instrument was donated to the new £38 million station by local man Dave Patterson in July, in a touching dedication to his late wife Jean, a former ScotRail employee.
It was damaged beyond repair days later.
BTP launched an investigation to trace whoever was responsible but officers have yet to identify the culprit.
A spokesman said: “No further action is being taken on this case unless further investigative opportunities come to light.”
The incident sparked a public fundraising campaign, with £4,700 donated for a replacement.
