Pensioner leaves emotional video message

By Mike Cotton, Town Reporter Thursday 29th May 2014

A PENSIONER who was robbed of his life-savings when masked men burst into his home has left a thankyou message to the Chronicle readers who stepped forward to help.


Harvey Clemit has left a video message saying he was overwhelmed by the generosity of locals who stepped forward and raised enough money to replace the life savings he lost.


We have an exclusive interview with Harvey in tomorrow's Barnsley Chronicle.
