A Sheffield pensioner has been reunited with his walking stick thanks to a South Yorkshire Police appeal on Facebook and Twitter.

Frank Smith, aged 85, from Norfolk Park, lost his stick during a visit to Sheffield city centre last week.

A member of the public passed it to the police.

It was inscribed with the words ‘in recognition of 19 years faithful and committed service to Sheffield recreation department, thank you Frank’.

He was presented with the stick after 19 years as a swimming pool attendant.
