Nurse’s badges stolen during home break-in

A NURSE is appealing for help finding her treasured professional badges stolen from her home.

The Newcastle General Hospital, Graduate Nursing Council and National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses badges were taken when her house on Hopkinson Street in Ovenden, Halifax, was broken into.

The culprits also took jewellery, boots and a TV.

She said the badges are of sentimental value and she is keen to have them back.

Anyone who can help, call police via 101 or Crimestoppers, where information can be passed on anonymously, on 0800 555111.

The break-in happened on New Year’s Day.
