A terminally ill army veteran has told his sons he does not want to return home after his house in Shrivenham in Oxfordshire was burgled while he was in hospital.
James Coffey's medals, his car and his late wife's wedding ring were all stolen in the raid.
James served in the army for more than five decades and only recently moved into the house to be closer to his children after having a stroke.
His two sons, Stuart and David Coffey are now calling for sentences to take the effect the crime has had on victims into account.
