A Salford man who scrawled "Lee Rigby's killers should hang" on the RAF Bomber Command War Memorial has been warned by a judge that he faces a suspended jail sentence.
Daniel Smith, 21, was told by District Judge Quentin Purdy that there were people who had been "deeply offended" by his actions when he defaced the monument in June.
"There are those who are deeply offended by what you chose to do and may wish you considerable ill, I am sure, simply because you chose to do it."
The judge adjourned sentencing to Thursday, while the possibility of bail hostel accommodation is explored for the defendant, who was remanded in custody.
