The North East Land, Sea and Air Museum was carefully robbed, probably while open to the public on a busy Bank Holiday, and thieves managed to quietly make off with various items including:
Luftwaffe pilot’s jacket
As items are unmarked, and they suspect items were stolen to order for a collector, they aren't hopeful for recovery.
Here's another shout out though in the hope that someone will see something suspicious and get in touch with the authorities.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
