Antique weapons and war medals were stolen in a break-in at a collector's home last month.

The items, which included medals from both world wars and 15 bottles of spirits, were taken from a house in Poplar Road between June 13 and June 27.

The items included a Japanese bayonet with a black leather scabbard, two French bayonets, one with St Etienne 1879 carved on the handle, two sets of British and Empire World War One medals including a Mons Star, two sets of British World War II medals and three German Iron Crosses from both world wars.

The owner is keen to have the items returned.

If you have any information, you can call police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
