Stolen Victoria Crosses recovered

Nine Victoria Crosses stolen in New Zealand were recovered after a reward of £120,000 was offered for their safe return.

The VCs were among 96 medals, including two George Crosses and an Albert Medal, taken in a raid on the national Army Museum in the central North Island town of Waiouru early in December.

The entire haul has been recovered in "mint condition" as a result of the reward, police said. Two-thirds of the reward was put up by the British peer Lord Ashcroft, who has a collection of around 150 VCs.
