WAR medals have been stolen by a burglar who smashed through patio doors to raid a home.

The medals, given for service in Iraq and Afghanistan, were taken from the home in Winter Gardens Way, Banbury, last Tuesday between 6.50pm and 11.30pm. An iPhone, an iPod, an X-Box 260, a brown wallet with cash inside, and a rucksack were also taken.

Police released the details of the burglary today.

The medals are not saleable items as they are engraved with the recipients name. If the thief has any morals at all, he will return them.
