Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

A water fea­ture dec­o­rated with 8,000 hand­made pop­pies has been van­dalised.

The Madeira Walk water­fall in Rams­gate was full of foam af­ter be­ing tar­geted.

Thou­sands of pop­pies, all cro­cheted or knit­ted by a craft group for the 100th an­niver­sary of the First World War were cov­ered in soap.

A Thanet Dis­trict Coun­cil spokesman said those re­spon­si­ble had shown a com­plete “lack of re­spect” and hoped it could be rec­ti­fied be­fore Re­mem­brance Sun­day.
