Medals awarded to an RAF pilot who lost his life in World War Two have been stolen in a break-in at his son's home in Folkestone, Kent

The four medals were awarded to Warrant Officer Richard Arding, who flew Lancaster bombers. His family have appealed for help from the public to find the medals.

South East Today's Simon Jones spoke to WO Arding's granddaughter Joanne Reed, his great niece Laura Poulton and Chief Insp Sharon Adley from Kent Police.
