Vandals target Australian war cemetery in UK

THE main Australian war cemetery in the UK has been targeted by vandals who sawed through a flagpole and spray-painted a memorial on the eve of Anzac Day.

The attack took place at St Mary's churchyard in Harefield in Middlesex, outside London.

More than 100 Anzacs and one Australian nurse, treated at the nearby Harefield Hospital during WWI, are buried on the site.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC), which looks after the graveyard, says today's Anzac Day service will still go ahead, after repairs have taken place.

Earlier this year the CWGC restored the graves of the Australian servicemen buried at Harefield.
