A doctor recognised the patient on a casualty department stretcher as a robber who had held him up at knifepoint, a court was told yesterday. Dr James Moore remembered the face of Karl Telemaque, 21, who had robbed him at a nightclub five months earlier.

The doctor rang police from Cardiff Royal Infirmary while another medic treated the man for his injuries. He then pointed him out when officers arrived. Telemaque, of Ely, Cardiff, who was wanted for a string of other crimes, was jailed for six years at Cardiff Crown Court.
