Thieves steal German WWII collection in Kidderminster

A collection of World War II medals and a ceremonial wooden dagger have been stolen from a house in Worcestershire.

The items were taken from a cabinet in Orchard Street, Kidderminster, between 14 July and 27 July while the owner was away on holiday.

War memorabilia, including five German WWII medals, was taken along with a 14in (35cm) dagger inscribed in German.

West Mercia Police have asked anyone to contact them if they have recently been offered the items for sale.

The collection had been in the owner's possession since 1945.
