Sorry but no sympathy for Carol - she's the one who decided to attach her number in a way which meant it would come off, and then chose not to check it or collect it when it "fell off" (her story). She should have known that no number means no finish, and just because she didn't like the way in which the marshall spoke to her doesn't give her any right to sue. She should know better.
VLM should introduce checks at 23 miles, with offenders being diverted to the left and held in the Tower.
A brief update on the number swapping case I came across (John Tighe of Chairman of Crowborough Runners donating his entry to a club colleague, Eileen Welch), whilst John has been removed from the results (still on his Power of 10 though) - Eileen appears very proud of having done both Brighton and London - with her genuine run in Brighton qualifying GFA for London 2019, all detailed in an article in a local paper (sorry I can't work out how to upload the image to my post.
I'd settle for them being named and shamed.
Chris Walker occupies quite a lot of my thoughts, I know this isn't healthy
Totally agree, keep checking the results and Walker's still there. Can't decide if people like him make me more angry or the club runners like the Crowborough lot. Speaking of which, if you look at marathonfoto 20186, you can see that Eileen has her gel belt across the bottom of the race number. I wonder if that is to hide the fact that it's a Male number?
