The worst nightmare happened for an elderly woman in the early hours of Monday morning (March 23).

The woman woke-up around 2.30am to find two masked men in her bedroom.

A CRUEL CRIME

The burglary happened at an address in Stockbridge. The two men, who'd covered their faces, stole several items:

  • A Military Cross medal
  • Money from the elderly woman's purse
  • Several items of jewellery

The crooks then left the address.

HUGELY IMPORTANT MEDAL 

The medal, which was awarded for acts of exemplary gallantry during active operations, was in a presentation case that was signed by the king.

POLICE APPEAL

  • Maybe you have been offered or have seen items of jewellery and a Military Cross medal for sale?
