SCRAP metal thieves have stripped plaques from a cemetery memorial commemorating the war dead.

No it wasnt in Liverpool or even up north, it was in Portsmouth.

The theft took place inside Kingston Cemetery, Kingston Road, from a 1.5 metre-high memorial for civilians who lost their lives in bombing raids during the Second World War.

Among the names is Peter Futcher, who died aged 12 during the attack.

His brother Brian Futcher, 67, who owns Squirrels antiques store, in Kingston Road, said he was shocked.

He added: ĎIím very sad this has happened and Iím pleased my mother isnít alive in one sense as itís horrible. I hope the thieves find the error of their ways and I pray for their souls that they see sense.í

Portsmouth City Council, which owns the cemetery, has reported the theft to the police and has put out a warning to scrap metal merchants making them aware of the items.
