Presteigne collector offers stolen stamps reward





An elderly stamp collector whose £80,000 collection was stolen during a raid on his home has put up a reward for its return.

The victim, from Presteigne, Powys, who does not want to be named, spent 60 years building up his collection, which included several rare examples.

Some of the stamps were recovered when two people were charged and then jailed for theft at Merthyr Crown Court.

But many are still outstanding and the owner is appealing for their return.

Dyfed-Powys Police said they believed other people were involved in the theft and were holding the missing stamps.
