Waiting for Video...

DOZENS of Christmas messages written by German soldiers stationed in Jersey have finally been delivered - 70 years after they were hidden by defiant British teenagers.

The festive cards and letters were due to be sent home from Nazi soldiers based on the Channel Island during its occupation in the Second World War.

But the cards, dated 1941, were stolen by a group of youths who broke into an Army post office in the capital St Helier.

The youngsters wanted to stop the German troops getting their messages home and hid the sack of mail in a secret location.
