“Mindless vandals” have desecrated a war memorial, months before centenary commemorations of the First World War.

Ron Drakeford, chairman of the Friends of Penwortham War Memorial, said it “looked like a bomb had gone off” at the site in Liverpool Road, Penwortham.

Dozens of plants had been trampled, shrubs pulled up, wreathes crushed, and boxes of wooden memorial crosses thrown around.
