Charity tin stolen from Hatfield pub

CALLOUS thieves have deprived wounded British soldiers of around �50 after pinching a charity collection tin from a pub.

The heartless crooks swiped the tin from the bar in the Horse and Groom, in Park Street, Old Hatfield, at some point between 11pm on Saturday and 4pm on Monday.

Chef Gillian Wood described the thieves as “callous” and “selfish”.

She added: “It is wrong, when our soliders go through so much to take from them.”

A police spokeswoman said: “Enquiries are ongoing.”
