Thieves smash Portsmouth D-Day museum front

The unveiling of a new entrance to Portsmouth's D-Day museum has been cancelled after it was damaged in a break-in overnight.

It is thought a concrete block was thrown at the new frontage, which depicts troops boarding landing craft ahead of the Normandy landings in 1944.

Poppy Appeal donation money was also stolen from the museum in Southsea.

D-Day veteran Gordon Dance, who was due to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony, said he was "disgusted".
