Swastikas sprayed on D-Day veterans' bench at Twyford Woods
Swastikas have been sprayed on a commemorative bench dedicated to veterans who fought at D-Day.
Vandals targeted a number of areas inside Twyford Woods, which is the former home of RAF North Witham in Lincolnshire, where American aircraft took off for Normandy ahead of D-Day.
Walls and empty fuel drums were also sprayed with the Nazi symbol in white and silver paint.
Police said it happened in the last 24 hours.
Only last week, one of the US veterans who flew out from the station returned to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
Lincolnshire Police said: "A number of areas within the Twyford Woods site have been defaced with Swastikas in silver and white spray paint.
"This includes a commemorative bench which has been extensively vandalised.
"We are appealing for witnesses to this vandalism and anyone with any information that can assist with our investigation."
