An 89-year-old war veteran has said he will stand at the Bomber Command monument in London's Green Park until spray paint defacing the memorial has been removed.
Douglas Radcliffe MBE, the Secretary of the Bomber Command Association, told ITV News that he was "very disturbed" by the act of vandalism and said he could not understand why anyone would deface the honour.
I'm standing here until this graffiti is removed.
The 77,000 young men who died, died to give whoever put that graffiti there the freedom to live in this country and honour it, so I can't believe that somebody would do this.
