A veteran of the Duke of Wellington’s regiment, who was mugged on Remembrance Day, has had his stolen medals replaced by an Army tailor.

George Gill was attacked on his way to a service at the cenotaph in Keighley. Moved by the story Sgt Martin Mitchell decided to create replicas of the stolen articles.

Mr Gill was presented with a plaque at a ceremony at the Infantry Training Centre in Catterick.
