The Mail on Sunday - - Tina Weaver -

A 98-YEAR-OLD man who was sav­agely at­tacked by bur­glars for his £10 TV has died in hos­pi­tal.

War hero Peter Gould­stone was dragged from his bed, punched in the face and left with bleed­ing on the brain af­ter the as­sault last month at his home in En­field, North Lon­don. De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Paul Ri­d­ley, who called the at­tack ‘de­spi­ca­ble’, urged any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact po­lice.

A £10,000 re­ward from Crimestop­pers has been of­fered.
