UPDATED: Man admits scrawling graffiti on Drummer Lee Rigby's memorial
8:57am Friday 1st November 2013 in News
A MAN has admitted scrawling graffiti about the death of Fusilier Lee Rigby on the RAF Bomber Command War Memorial in central London.
Daniel James Smith, aged 21, of Grecian Street North, Salford, caused criminal damage to the memorial in Green Park on June 5.
Unemployed Smith appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court this morning.
The memorial, which was created to remember the thousands of RAF crew who lost their lives in the Second World War, was vandalised twice in just over a week following the killing of Drummer Rigby in Woolwich, south east London, on May 22.
Thousands of people lined the streets of Bury for the funeral of Fusilier Lee Rigby in July.
Prime Minister David Cameron and Mayor of London Boris Johnson were among those who attended the poignant service at Bury Parish Church.
Fusilier Rigby’s family, including wife Rebecca, was joined by about 800 mourners in the church to honour the fallen soldier from Middleton, who was attacked in Woolwich, London, in May.
