Cookham bonfire charity collection stolen

A charity fundraiser was robbed of a collection raised at a bonfire event by three men armed with a broken garden ornament.

The 71-year-old man had returned to his car when he was approached in the Lower Cookham Road area of Maidenhead, Berkshire, on Saturday night.

He was attacked and suffered injuries to his face and head.

He tried to give chase but the men fled with a large sum of money, including a large volume of coins, police said.
