Olympian's medals stolen

Burglars stole medals and jewellery when they "ransacked" the home of an Olympic athlete while she was abroad.

British middle distance runner Eilish McColgan said she was "upset and angry" after her Manchester home was targeted on Wednesday.

She asked Greater Manchester Police (GMP) for help on social media, saying no officers had been sent for six hours after the break-in was reported.

GMP said fewer officers on the beat meant certain crimes took priority.

McColgan, from Dundee, posted on social media on Wednesday that a member of her family found her home in Didsbury "trashed" when they went to check on her dog at 16:00 BST while she was in Stockholm, Sweden.
