Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A “ME­DIEVAL” van packed with his­toric cos­tumes, swords and a four poster bed has been stolen from the home of a re-en­ac­tor.

Steve Parish, who takes his old garb to schools to bring 25,000 years of his­tory to life, said among the items stolen was his grandad’s World War One bay­o­net and bul­lets from 1645.

He said: “Hand­made re­pro­duced cloth­ing, which cost thou­sands, was stolen.

“Swords and spears were in the back of the van which are weapons, and in the wrong hands could be very dan­ger­ous.

“Var­i­ous ir­re­place­able arte­facts were also in the van, in­clud­ing bul­lets used at the Bat­tle of Naseby, in the English Civil War.”

The van was stolen be­tween 10pm on Sun­day and 7am on Mon­day from an ad­dress in St James, Northamp­ton.
