Police have appealed for help in tracing the owners of World War I and II medals found in Suffolk.

It follows the arrest of a 19-year-old man in Lowestoft on suspicion of handling stolen goods.

The honours include two World War I medals, two World War II medals and an undated naval long service medal relating to HMS Greenwich.

Suffolk police are seeking the owners or information about where the medals might have come from.

Officers said three of the medals were inscribed 'M10109 W Dickie'.

Three coins were also recovered dating from 1901 (Queen Victoria), 1907 (Edward VII) and 1931 (George V).

The arrested man has been released on police bail until the end of November pending further inquiries.
