Graffiti is being removed from Spalding's war memorial to honour the men who died in the First World War.

'Milo Uk' has been scrawled onto a plaque - next to the names of some of the men who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the 1914-1918 war - in the memorial in Ayscoughfee Gardens.

The memorial was designed by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, whose work also includes the Cenotaph in London.

A council spokesperson said: “We can sadly confirm that we’ve had an incident of graffiti on the war memorial in Ayscoughfee Gardens. We have a contractor on site at present who will remove it sympathetically today.

"If any markings remain, we’ll seek the advice about the best ways to remove it from the War Memorials Trust.”
