A wounded soldier whose TV, laptop and computer games console were stolen while he was undergoing treatment has been given replacements by a Redbridge-based charity.

Private Mark Allen, from Norfolk, had both his legs amputated after he was injured while fighting for the British Army in Afghanistan.  And while he was on a visit to London for rehabilitation the 22-year-old was left devastated after his belongings were stolen when his car was broken into.
But Hainault-base charity, The Dream Factory, has stepped in to replace the items after its patron and former ‘Allo ‘Allo actress Vicki Michelle heard about his story.
