Relatives of a Lincolnshire soldier have been reunited with his treasured war medal after it was unearthed by a local metal detectorist.

The Victory Medal, which was awarded to those serving in the armed forces during the First World War, was discovered near Wragby by local metal detectorist Charlie Atkinson.

The medal was given to Charles William Baggaley, who was with the Lincolnshire Regiment between 1914 and 1919.

Charlie was keen to reunite the medal with Baggaley's family and approached Lincolnshire County Council for help.
