The two medals taken during the break-in

Two medals from the First World War have been stolen during a burglary at a home in Walton le Dale.

More than £10,000 worth of belongings was taken during a break-in on Cuerden Lane.

The medals taken are campaign medals complete with ribbons.

One has the name of Charles Wheddon engraved on the back and the other is engraved with the name James Edward Nicholas.

During the break-in a laptop, speakers, a sat nav, jewellery, watches and two designer handbags were taken.

PC Graham Swain said: “The medals are of great sentimental value to the victim who has understandably been left very upset by this burglary.

“I am appealing to anyone, especially local residents who may have seen anything suspicious around the time of the burglary to contact us with any information they may have.”

Anyone with information can contact Lancashire police on 101 quoting log crime reference number SA1401034.

Alternatively, they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
