MP condemns theft of war medals

East Yorkshire MP has condemned the theft of war medals worth around £2,000 and is appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

The four medals were stolen from the Yorkshire Air Museum in Elvington where they were on display at an outbuilding as part of a public exhibition. The theft occurred at sometime between 10am and 4pm on 3 November.

Sir Greg said: “I utterly condemn this cowardly theft. These medals commemorate the courage shown in defending our nation and it is quite nauseating that they have been stolen”.

Sir Greg is appealing to anyone with information about the theft of the medals to contact the North Yorkshire Police or Crimestoppers.
