'Mindless' attack on war memorial
Police in the north of the Isle of Man are hunting vandals responsible for an attack on a village war memorial.

The rifle was broken off the statue of a soldier in Churchtown, Lezayre, and shattered before being scattered across the ground, police said.

A spokesman described it as a "mindless attack" which showed a lack of respect for those who gave their lives fighting for their country.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Ramsey Police.
