After reading the Norfolk police statement and the Nature blog, it is interesting to compare and contrast. The police have no idea who did it, and found no evidence to suggest UEA employees or associates did it, but that is a tad different to Nature which claims UEA staff/associates were "ruled out." If you have no idea whodunnit how can you rule out UEA staff/associates? Ironic that the current Nature cover next to the article has the title "Go it a spin." PS> Yes, I am THAT Bulldust ... hence the interest in the articles.
