/ Appeal after WWII medals found

Police in Bolton have released images of some lost WWII medals they are keen to reunite with their rightful owner.

On Sunday 11 November 2012, five World War II medals were found by a member of the public at Trinity Street bus station in Bolton.

Four of the medals are court mounted and the other is a single medal.

Detective Constable Paul Gore from Scholey Street police station said: "We are extremely grateful to the member of public that handed these medals in to us and we are now eager to return them to their rightful owner.

"It is possible someone has misplaced these medals after travelling to or from a memorial service on Sunday and I imagine they are feeling devastated at the prospect of losing these highly valued possessions.

"Three photographs were also found with the medals, one of which we have issued, which is an image of a minesweeper.

"The medals and photographs are being stored safely at Scholey Street police station and we would ask either the owner of the medals, or anyone who has any information about who they belong to, to contact police on 0161 856 5625."
