Lincolnshire Police have identified person wanted in connection with Grantham’s Margaret Thatcher statue vandalism





A person wanted in connection with the defacing of Grantham’s Margaret Thatcher statue has now been identified.

A derogatory message – believed to be the word ‘b***ard’ – was daubed on the St Peter's Hill monument to the former prime minister overnight on Tuesday/Wednesday.

The red paint had been cleared by lunch time and officers issued a picture of someone they wished to trace yesterday (Wednesday, March 6).
