Veteran's Légion d'Honneur sent to Liverpool Costco in error

A Légion d'Honneur medal destined for a World War Two veteran was instead received by staff at a supermarket.

France's highest military honour was meant to be posted to former sailor Joseph Carter, who took part in the liberation of France.

But a postcode mix-up meant it was delivered to the Liverpool branch of Costco instead of Mr Carter, who also lives in the city.

Costco passed it to the Royal British Legion, who found Mr Carter on Friday.
