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
