<br />
Vandals have caused outrage by defacing a war memorial.  Two statues of soldiers in combat that feature as part of the prestigious World War One memorial have been targeted. <br />
<br />
The vandals smeared the eyes of each of the statues in a blue substance believed to be paint.   On one of the eyes, the paint has dripped down to the statues face. <br />

The World War One memorial site in Portsmouth, Hants, sits next to the city's Guildhall and pays tribute to those who lost their lives fighting for their country.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
