Is that 12.59 a.m. or p.m.?


Sounds like pedantry but is an important question, which use of the 24 hour clock would render unnecessary. 1259 is unambiguous and that’s what you need if you’re “appealing for information” from the public in order to put some mad person behind bars.


sorry but 1259 is ambiguous… did you mean December 1959 ?


Well, we get a bit of help here from the author of the article where they say “today, Tuesday”. I suppose there must exist on the planet someone who believes that the call to the police was made in the year 1259AD but then again, evidence from that individual would probably be considered unreliable.


Errr if the article above says 12:59 pm, that explicitly means afternoon. 12:59 am means ‘early hours of the morning. Simple ?


Actually if you were using the 24 hour clock it would be 00.59 meaning in the morning . 12.59 would always be in the afternoon.


Both the above comments are true. However, if you walk down Newport high street asking random people, during what part of the day 1259pm falls into I’d be prepared to bet Dave Stewart’s pension that a fair number would be unsure.
