Police in Todmorden are trying to trace the owner of some unique jewellery.

Amongst the items police have had since March is a broach with a photo presumed to be of a soldier - possibly in early war time.

There is also an identity tag with it, with the name and address of Lavinia Brogden of Queensway, Rochdale.

Officers have already made extensive enquiries at the address and in the area to try and trace the rightful owners without success.

There are also watches, a pearl necklace and choker as well as cuff-links.

PC Sarah Royle of Todmorden Police, said: “Someone somewhere is obviously missing these items - especially the photo of the soldier which is clearly of sentimental importance. We think it is of a soldier from World War One and I would love to be able to reunite it with the owner.

“We’ve made various enquiries to try and trace the owner but have drawn a blank - so if you recognise the items please get in touch.”

It is not known how the person who had the items before had come to be in their possession.
