Clean-Up Underway On Vandalised RAF Memorial

The clean up of a Royal Air Force memorial in central London is underway after it was among a number vandalised with paint.

The Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park was splashed in white paint between 7:45pm and 9pm on Sunday, according to police.

The RAF Benevolent Fund said it was the fourth time in six years the monument has been attacked.

The memorial commemorates 55,573 RAF Bomber Command personnel who died during the Second World War.

A statue of Sir Winston Churchill on New Bond Street and the Royal Marines Memorial on The Mall were among other memorials that appeared to have been vandalised.
