Northamptonshire Police have released CCTV images of an individual they wish to speak to after a war memorial was vandalised in Oundle Road, Thrapston.
The war memorial was damaged beyond repair by the idiot(s) who had nothing better to do with their time.
Police said that the incident happened sometime overnight from Thursday, November 12, into Friday, November 13, when the silent soldier who stands over Thrapston’s war memorial was destroyed.
The idiot who damaged the memorial has been condemned by Thrapston Town Council, local MP Tom Pursglove and others on social media.
The community have rallied together to raise money for the memorial and a Go Fund Me set up by Sophie Starsmore has raised more than £3,000.
If anyone recognises the individual in the images or its distinctive clothing, then please call Northants police on 101 quoting reference: 20000600514

Before you go...
WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
With any luck, the community will recognise this bottom feeder and deal with the matter privately. The courts will only hand out a wrist slapping sentence anyway, so DIY is the way to go.
Mindless yobs doing this sort of thing are bad enough. When those with higher education indulge in such activities, one sometimes wishes that a few old fashioned Royal Navy punishments could be meted out. A few strokes of the cat would stop such nonsense stone dead.
I can dream, can’t I?
Yes the cat would be appropriate but in today’s society they have given more rights to the criminals while the victims are mainly on their own.
Yes you can & It agree we are way to sift on crime especially these young hooligans short sharp good hiding but sadly we have too many politically correct numpties in charge. Therefore these young lads & some lasses run riot because they know they can!☹️
Dear God what was he thinking ? This is a good case for a large custodial sentence,. Hope he gets what’s coming to him.
