Police comment on poppy collection theft

An investigation is underway after a poppy collection tin was stolen from Durham Light Infantry Museum on Thursday night.

Sergeant Bridget Orton, of Durham Police said:

"This was a particularly heartless crime, especially on the eve of Remembrance Sunday. It just goes to show that criminals have no regard for common decency and will even steal money raised for a charity or good cause."
