WWI medals stolen on eve of Remembrance Sunday

Police have condemned "despicable" thieves who stole First World War medals during a distraction burglary on the eve of Remembrance Sunday.

The medals were taken yesterday afternoon from an upstairs room at the home of an elderly couple in Walesby, near Worksop, north Nottinghamshire.

One person gained access to the house in New Hill through an unlocked back door while an accomplice distracted the female occupant.

Detective Sergeant Gary Hewson is appealing for anyone who was offered war medals for sale to contact police.

He said: "This is a despicable crime, which has taken place the day before Remembrance Sunday.

If you know anything that could help us catch these offenders and return these war medals to this couple then please get in touch."

The first offender is described as having tanned skin, possibly of Asian appearance, with dark, short hair.

The second man was white with fair hair, and was slightly taller than his accomplice.
