Widow of WW2 veteran accepts Arctic Star medal

The widow of a WW2 hero finally received his medal last night - three months after he died.

A long-running campaign to award medals to those who served on the Arctic convoys was finally given the go-ahead last year - but Herbert 'Stormy' Lovegrove, from Penarth, died in May, at the age of 91.

Last night his widow said that despite not receiving his medal before he passed away, Stormy had expressed his delight that the role of those who served in the Arctic was finally being recognised.
