The outbreak of war 100 years ago was being remembered today at a war memorial vandalised by metal thieves. Civic leaders at Enfield in North London have chosen to hold their commemoration at Broomfield Park in Southgate.
Bronze plaques bearing the names of 550 local heroes from the 1914-18 conflict were stolen in 2009.
The valuable metal memorials were never recovered but have been replaced by wooden replicas.

"Because although there was an enormous amount of waste and loss of life, there was a cause that young men rallied to at the beginning of the war, which was the idea that Europe shouldn't be dominated by one power, that a country, a small country like Belgium shouldn't be simply snuffed out."
