The medal that was found in Andover Credit: Hampshire Police

Hampshire Police have launched an appeal to trace the owner of the medal that was lost in Andover.

It was found near the Folly Roundabout in Andover on Monday 17th December.

It has a Northern Ireland bar on the top with a "For campaign service" inscription on the back of the medal.

Inspector Paul Markham said:

"This could have huge sentimental value for the person who has lost it. A member of the public handed it in at Andover Police Station so we are now appealing for the public’s help to try and trace the owner.”

Spate of criminal damage

Police are appealing for information after a spate of criminal damage in a number of rural areas near Andover.

On the evening of Tuesday, November 5th, more than 30 incidents were reported where cars were damaged when stones or pebbles were thrown at them.

Officers believe the offenders were in a car and may have been using a catapult to throw stones at the cars. Cars parked in Stockbridge, Broughton and Kings Somborne were damaged.
