Second World War veteran, 92, has 11 military medals stolen on 70th anniversary of D-Day landings: Police hunt for burglar who posed as worker for water company
A 92-year-old war veteran had his medals stolen on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, police said today.
11 medals were taken from the veteran’s home in Whetstone, north London, on Friday morning as thousands gathered in Normandy to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
A man claiming to represent a water company knocked on the unnamed pensioner’s door and said he needed to check the water pressure, Scotland Yard said.
