Police are hunting vandals who ‘beheaded’ statues commemorating those who died in the two World Wars. The Tommy Silhouettes were found ripped from their stands and broken — some with their heads removed — at Purfleet Garrison Community Centre.

They are believed to have been vandalised between 8pm on Friday and 10am the next day in what the police have branded “despicable acts”.

The damage echoes several incidents where war memorials were vandalised last year, including a statue of Sir Winston Churchill being covered in paint and damage to the Bomber Command Memorial in London’s Green Park.

“Sadly, they were damaged – possibly beyond repair – in despicable acts this weekend. “A dedicated officer has been allocated to the investigation to look into the circumstances and to find those responsible.”
