Medals - Gloucs police
Police are hoping to reunite the medals with their owner
Two World War II medals have been handed into police after they were found on a Gloucestershire street.

They were found in an envelope with a name and address on the front but so far officers have been so far unable to trace the owner.

One of the medals, the Africa Star, has a sandy-coloured ribbon with dark blue, red and light blue stripes. The second is called The War Medal.

The envelope was found in Dunster Gardens, Cheltenham.
