A grief-stricken pensioner has made a desperate plea for the return of his missing wallet which contained the only two photos of his two murdered sons.

Thomas “Tom” Paterson, 79, lost his brown-leather card wallet in Gorleston on Wednesday morning (January 10).

The Glaswegian, who has lived in the area for about 40 years, said he did not care about the missing cards, he just wanted the precious photos of his sons back.

Mr Paterson, who lives in Gorleston, said he thinks he lost his wallet either in Morrisons or on the way back.

His wife died six months ago and his daughter in law died recently too so he said he was going through a difficult time.

Mr Paterson said if a reward was what someone wanted for the return of his card holder then he would be prepared to offer one.

The missing item has been reported to the police.
