Olympic rower appeals for return of bronze medals


Olympic rower Alex Partridge says he is devastated after he and hockey player Hannah Macleod had their London 2012 bronze medals stolen.

They were out celebrating with other Team GB members in the capital after a Buckingham Palace reception on Tuesday when the medals went missing.

Partridge's medal was inside a blazer which was taken in the early hours.

He told Tony Livesey on BBC Radio 5 live that the support he had received from the public since the theft had been "amazing".

Police say anyone with information should call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
