Vandals have targeted the Lee Rigby memorial, ripping down flags in what police believe was an overnight attack. A police cordon is in place, and officers have asked for witnesses to come forward.
This incident comes just days before the anniversary of Mr. Rigby’s death, where he was murdered by Islamic extremists Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale.
The killers are currently serving life sentences.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said:
‘Police were called at 11.44am on Thursday to a report that flags at the Lee Rigby memorial in Hillreach, Charlton – opposite the Royal Artillery Barracks – had been damaged, with some possibly stolen’.
‘Officers have attended and are making enquiries; a crime scene is in place’.
