Burglars raid British Legion HQ for poppy cash
Criminals have broken into the Royal British Legion headquarters in Gloucester and stolen £2,000 in cash from this year's Poppy Appeal.
The burglary at the premises in Commercial Road took place sometime between 10.15pm last night and 8am this morning. (Thursday)
The cash is in coins and two lap-tops were also taken in the night-time raid.
PC Matt Williams said: “Any break-in is reprehensible but given the fact the victim is a charity and the appeal one that so many people have in their thoughts at this time of year is very sad indeed.
