Exton war memorial in Rutland cleaned for first time in 100 years

A village war memorial has been cleaned for the first time in almost a century.

The memorial in Exton was first unveiled in 1922 by the Earl of Gainsborough in memory of his son and two nephews who died in the First World War.

It bears the names of 19 servicemen from Exton and Whitwell who lost their lives in the global conflict.
