Police hunt medal thieves

MONEY and sentimental items were stolen from a house in Morpeth last Friday.

Between 10am and 3.30pm, offenders used a garden tool to smash the conservatory door of a property in Bankside and once inside they went through a number of rooms.

Two North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers medals and £130 in cash were taken.

Any witnesses or anyone with information about the burglary should contact Morpeth police on 03456 043043 – extension 69191 – or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
