DNA and fingerprint evidence in the car linked it to alleged CYG members Kyle Smith-Milson, 18, Shaun Byrne, and Sam Hughes, but Blake Brown, an associate of other alleged CYG victims, would not make a complaint.

W Cyg is now classified as a semi-regular variable of the type SRb.
However, from the variable star point of view there's no mention of U Gem, the main class of cataclysmic variable, although it can reach mag 8, and two of the subclasses, SS Cyg and SU UMa, do get a mention although the latter rarely exceeds mag 11.
This is not due to the intensity of monitoring as U Gem is not normally observed as frequently as other dwarf novae such as RX And, SS Aur, Z Cam, SS Cyg, AB Dra, AH Her and SU UMa, which are all on my priority observing programme.
