A war memorial in Surrey has been vandalised in what police have called a "mindless" act of criminal damage.
A Perspex protective covering for the wreath on the memorial in Station Avenue, Walton-on-Thames, was smashed by unknown offenders.
A Surrey Police spokesman said the damage had caused "a great deal of upset" to local people.
The vandalism happened some time between Sunday and Wednesday. Officers are appealing for witnesses.
