Stolen WWII Nazi letters delivered at last

Letters written by Nazi soldiers during the occupation of Jersey during World War II are finally being delivered - 70 years later.

They were stolen by a group of local teenagers, who broke into a German army post office as part of their resistance against the occupation.

The letters - many of which were Christmas cards - were handed into the local archive, which began the process of tracing the families in Germany they were intended for.

Robert Hall reports.
