POLICE are trying to track down vandals who trashed the Civil War memorial at Worcester’s Fort Royal Park.
Significant damage, including graffiti bearing the letters BLM, was caused between 3pm on Monday and 7am on Tuesday.
Insp Dave Troth from Worcester Safer Neighbourhood Team wants anyone who saw anything or anyone acting suspiciously to get in touch with officers.
“We believe this damage would have caused a significant noise and disturbance, so we are hopefully someone will be able to come forward with any information that may help us.”
“Although the graffiti shows BLM, the acronym for Black Lives Matters, we will be looking at all possible groups and individuals that may have caused this damage.”
Police patrols have been stepped up by safer neighbourhood team officers who will be available if anyone wants to talk about the vandalism.
Alternatively, information can be given by calling West Mercia Police on 101.
