Police appeal over stolen Nobel Peace Prize

"Some of the items taken in this burglary are very uncommon and we are asking the public to keep their eyes open for them.

"One of the items is a Nobel Peace Prize, dating back to 1934 when it was awarded to Newcastle's Arthur Henderson for his work on international disarmament.

"The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded 93 times to 124 Nobel Laureates between 1901 and 2012 and so the stolen item is extremely rare, recognisable and historically important."

– Newcastle Temporary Superintendent Bruce Storey
