Police are appealing for information in their hunt to find an army service medal which was stolen in a burglary in Kingsbury.

The heirloom and other possessions were stolen during the break-in which took place between October 18 - 22.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Louise Moore, said: “I am appealing to people who may have been offered the medal, or have seen a medal like this recently, to contact me.
