When twins Len and Derek were teenagers in the 1950s, they embraced whatever was the current craze. One of these was to cut the rubber of cat’s eyes and extract the glass reflectors. The twins had the biggest collection in school.

They were busy doing this one day when a car, driven by a young doctor called John Davidson, came fast round the corner. Derek dived for safety. Len, a second behind him, was killed instantly.

In 1998 the body of the now-retired Dr Davidson was found in woods near the accident site. His eyes had been torn out.
