Disrespectful young man urinates on war memorial on Remembrance Sunday

The 21-year-old has been ordered to apologise to war veterans

A 21-year-old has been shamed for urinating on a war memorial on Remembrance Sunday.

Police have ordered the disrespectful Bristol man to write a letter of apology to the Royal British Legion.

He was detained by Avon and Somerset Police for several hours after relieving himself on the city's cenotaph in Colston Avenue at 2.20am, just hours before it was to be the focus of the city's remembrance commemorations.

A police spokesperson said: “He has been released with a conditional caution with a requirement that he attends a victim awareness course, which he will have to pay for.

“He is also required to send a letter of apology to the Royal British Legion.

“If he fails to comply with the conditions of the caution, his case will be referred to the courts.”
