Vandals spray swastikas in woods




Vandals have sprayed swastikas around Twyford Wood which was the venue for a D-Day commemoration earlier this month.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the spate of vandalism which took place at the wood near Colsterworth in the last few days.

A number of areas within the Twyford Wood site have been defaced with swastikas in silver and white spray paint. These include a commemorative bench

which has been extensively vandalised.

Recently veteran American Second World War pilot Lt Col David Hamilton, 96, made an emotional return to the wood, which was formerly RAF North Witham, 75 years after he flew from there on a perilous pre-invasion mission on the eve of D-Day. His visit was marked by a special flyover of an original WWll Douglas C47 Skytrain.
