A teenager has admitted to causing damage to a Remembrance Day memorial figure.

This follows an investigation into reports that a ‘Tommy’ sillhouette – a figure of a soldier – in Broad Street, Harleston, near Diss, was damaged.

The incident was between 5pm on Tuesday, February 13, and 8am on Wednesday, February 14.

Following inquires, a teenage boy was interviewed and admitted to the offence.

He will be referred to the Youth Offending Team, which is outside of the court and criminalisation process.

The aim is to tackle children’s behaviour and divert children away from offending, but if he is not eligible, he may still end up in court.
