Anzac graves vandalised in West London

Graves of Anzac soldiers who died in World War I have been vandalised with blue spray paint in West London.

It is the second time grave stones at St Mary’s Churchyard Cemetery in Harefield have been targeted by vandals this year.

Local councillor Jane Palmer made the discovery on Sunday morning.


Pavers had also been ripped up and thrown around, damaging some of the grave stones, and the vandals had attempted to saw the Australian flag pole in half.

Around a quarter of the 112 Australian graves at the cemetry were vandalised.

Police are investigating the incident.
