On the 2nd October 1979 a massive publicity campaign aimed at detecting the series of crimes by identifying the author of the "Sunderland" tape and letters was launched throughout the North and the North East of England. The cost of this campaign (estimated at around £l million) was met by contributions from local industry and commerce with a relatively modest contribution by the Police Authority.
