Dennis Birch and son, Paul Daley

Police in Leeds are hunting a thief who brazenly walked into an 88-year-old veteran's home in broad daylight and took cash as he sat in his wheelchair.

It was all captured on cameras that had been installed by Dennis Birch's son who'd been concerned about his welfare.

Police have described it as a 'disgusting crime'. Chris Kiddey has been speaking to Mr Birch, his son Paul Daley, and Detective Inspector Richard Holmes.
