A tree that was planted in memory of one of the victims of the West Cumbria shootings has been damaged.
The damage was caused at around 10pm, 20 July, when an offender, who was part of a group of young people, snapped the tree in half at Wyndham Place, Egremont.
The tree was dedicated to Isaac Dixon. Copeland Council say they will replace the tree in the autumn time.
Any act of vandalism is unacceptable, but when you consider the reason why this tree was planted, it makes this episode absolutely despicable and shows a complete lack of respect.
I knew Isaac well – he was a popular figure in the Egremont area - and my thoughts are with his friends and family who were brought some solace in light of his tragic death by the planting of this tree in his memory."
Anyone with information should email email@example.com or 101, quoting log reference 262 of 20 July.
