    BBC News Online

    Stephen Pantry (right) who spotted the vandalised trees at Gunthorpe, said planting them in memory of the village's fallen soldiers was "a terrific idea" but it was "devastating" to see them now ruined.

    "I don't understand the mentality of how anybody can do such a thing," he said.

    All that's left of some of the trees is a stump and the ribbons that were tied to the trees. 

    Mr Pantry said it was a shame to see this happen as so many volunteers had given their time to clear the area.
