Police are appealing for information after “irreplaceable” First World War medals were stolen in a burglary in Leeds.

The medals, which belonged to the victim’s grandfather, were taken when thieves targeted a house off York Road, Seacroft, between 5.10pm and 5.45pm last Wednesday, January 28.

They were inscribed ‘Corporal D Davies’ and are similar to those pictured.

Det Con Faye Newton, of Leeds neighbourhood crime team, said: “The medals were of great sentimental value to the victim and are completely irreplaceable. They are very distinctive items and would stand out if they were being offered for sale.

“I would like to hear from anyone who has any information that could assist in tracing them.”

Call Det Con Newton at Stainbeck police station via 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.

The disgraced former celebrity publicist, Max Clifford, has reportedly died in hospital aged 74 after collapsing in prison.
