A terminally ill man from Hull is having to replace thousands of pounds worth of electronics after two masked men held him up in his flat at knifepoint.
Denis Nicolini, 77, from Bransholme, has cancer and had just replaced the items from a previous break-in when the men, posing as police officers, forced their way into his home. Once they had pushed their way past Denis, the burglars took his recently-replaced computer and photography equipment.
The retired electrical engineer's family are trying to persuade him to move to a safer area, but Denis believes the break-ins and three previous muggings should not force him to leave the area where he has lived for years.
