Nottinghamshire Police is appealing for information and witnesses after a statue remembering those who lost their lives or fought in military service was vandalised.

The Tommy Silhouette statue was donated to Carlton Fire Station by Nottinghamshire County Council in 2018.

The station is shared by Nottinghamshire Police and Nottingham Fire and Rescue Service.

It is believed the statue was vandalised between Friday 31 January and Monday 3 February 2020.

Detective Sergeant Mike Ebbins, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This is a disgusting and shocking case of criminal damage and we are exploring a number of lines of enquiry as part of our investigation.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Crews from Carlton are truly appalled and upset by the vandalism of the Tommy Silhouette that stands outside the Fire Station.

“The statue is considered by the crews as part of the Station and they are hurt by the damage that was caused over the weekend.”

If you have any information, please contact the police via 101 and quote incident number 294 of 3 February 2020.
