Missing - one Nobel Peace Prize and a crucial lock of hair

Sad story of the week is the terrible crime that saw a burglary in Newcastle leading to the loss of
- the Nobel Peace Prize of 1934, which was awarded to Newcastle’s Arthur Henderson for his work on international disarmament.
- a lock of hair of Lord Collingwood, who died 200 years ago: the noble Lord helped Nelson lead the British fleet in victory over the French / Spanish at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
The lock of hair was in a circular oak box with an engraved inscription.

In the unlikely event you are offered these down the pub this weekend please notify the Police.
