Olympian’s medals stolen in burglary

British Olympian Eilish McColgan has been left "upset and angry" after burglars stole medals and jewellery when they "ransacked" the athlete’s home while she was abroad.

The middle distance runner asked Greater Manchester Police for help on social media, saying no officers had been sent for six hours after the break-in was reported.

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 4.00pm while she was in Stockholm, Sweden.

In a second post, she said British Championship medals had been taken alongside a necklace featuring the symbol of the Olympic Games.

McColgan represented Great Britain at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Games.
