British Transport Police released this image of the violin, after it had been recovered.
Min-Jin Kym spoke to the British Transport Police about her emotions following the recovery of her £1.2m violin.
Internationally-acclaimed musician Min-Jin Kym said that she was elated by the news of the violin's recovery.
"It's been a very difficult journey; I still can't quite believe what has happened," she said.
"The loss of the instrument, and the acute responsibility I felt, was at the back of my mind at every moment of the day.
"I'd played the instrument since I was a teenager, so it'd been a huge part of my identity for many years.
"The theft was a crushing blow and the detectives in the case had always, quite rightly, been very careful not to give me false hope.
"When they told me the good news, it didn't feel real.
"I've now gone from devastation to the other end of the scale - an incredible feeling of elation that hasn't left me. I'm still feeling the butterflies in my stomach and am on cloud nine."
Detective Chief Inspector Simon Taylor, who led the hunt for the violin, said:
"We're absolutely delighted to have recovered the Stradivarius violin after a long and very complex investigation.
"Though it took some time to successfully locate and recover the violin, we were confident it had remained in the UK.
"I always maintained that its rarity and distinctiveness would make any attempt to sell it extremely difficult, if not futile, because established arts and antiques dealers would easily recognise it as stolen property."
