A Royal Navy veteran who lost his medal during the D-Day procession in Preston earlier this month has been given a replacement.

Peter Foster, 62, was presented with the replacement after his daughter’s appeal for help to find the badge was widely shared – but ultimately unsuccessful.

Organised by Preston City Council and Cllr Philip Crowe, the mayor of Preston, the replacement coincides with Armed Forces Week.

He was also shown around the council chamber and learned about the history of the mayor’s regalia during his visit.
