Northumbria Police is appealing for help to reunite an old photograph with its rightful owner.

The photograph pictured was handed in to officers at East Boldon metro station last month by a member of the public, and was found rolled up and soaking wet.

The old WW2 photograph depicts a Lancaster bomber with its maintenance crew, and is believed to be part of the 617 and 627 ‘Dambusters’ squadron.

The photograph has since been dried out and officers are keen to return it to its rightful owner, and are asking for the public's help.
