Information has just been passed to me from a member of the COTT facebook page. There was no other information. If there is an update I will add it to this post.
I’ve just been advised that retired Inspector Peter Murphy who did the bulk of his service at Cardiff has died at his home in France following a long illness."

Peter joined BTP probably at Lowestoft, on 17 August 1970 at the age of 28. It is believed he was born at Bloxwich, near Walsall in the West Midlands. He was promoted to sergeant at Bristol and inspector at Cardiff Rail by 1981. He also spent time covering the inspector's post at Swansea.
