There had been a break in at the "Sweaty Chef" Kebab shop, and the new owner, Mustapha Bettaname, had been robbed of his secret kebab recipe. The police had one eye witness, Al Kaholic, the local wino and world champion turps nudger.

A Police line up of 11 suspects was made to stand in a straight line to have an Identity Parade. The main culprit was asked to stand in the center of the line-up.

1) Barb Dwyre and Chris Mass stood to the right of the main culprit
2) Two suspects stood between Ewan Watarmy and Lou Stooth
3) Seven suspects stood between Mike Rhosopht and Phil Mypokits
4) Gerry Atrick stood to the right of Hugo Phurst
5) Robin Banks and Polly Ester-Phants stood either side of Ewan Watarmy
6) Diddy Dewit and Polly Ester-Phants stood to the left of the main culprit
7) Six suspects stood between Chris Mass and Ewan Watarmy
8) Two suspects stood between Ewan Watarmy and Diddy Dewit

Who is the main culprit?

It would be great if there was an absolute solution. I got the right answer but it just feels incomplete if suspects can be in multiple positions.
