Men charged after Ashill WW1 memorial destroyed in car crash
Two men have been charged after a Norfolk church memorial lychgate to the soldiers of World War One was "destroyed" when it was hit by a car.
The vehicle crashed into the gate at St Nicholas Church in Ashill, near Watton, at about 03:00 BST on Friday.
Two men, aged 27 and 21, have been charged with failing to stop after a road traffic collision.
They are due to appear before Norwich Magistrates' Court on 18 August.
The Rev Jane Atkins said it was "amazing" the stone memorial plaque mounted inside the gate's base was still intact as "nothing else has been saved - it's utterly destroyed".
