It is expected to cost about £5,000 to clean and repair the monument
Guernsey's Liberation Monument is being cleaned and repaired in preparation for Liberation Day.
The work entails removing dirt, oil and chewing gum, as well as repairing and relaying a number of the monument's granite slabs.
According to the States, the amount of cleaning required has increased because of skateboarders using the monument.
The work, which needs to be finished in time for Liberation Day on 9 May, is set to cost up to £5,000.
Inscriptions on the monument will also be re-enamelled for the first time since it was unveiled by Prince Charles at the celebrations in 1995 to mark the 50th anniversary of liberation.
A commemoration stone, unveiled by the Queen on the roundabout during her 2005 visit for the 60th anniversary of the Channel Islands' liberation from Nazi occupation, will be moved to the flowerbed near the monument while the work is taking place.
