Winston Churchill statue in Paris desecrated with blood red paint on liberation anniversary

Breaking News

French anti-war campaigners have desecrated a statue of Winston Churchill in central Paris on the anniversary of the city's liberation from Nazi rule.

The night time attack saw the bronze hands of the £250,000 statue daubed in red paint.

The initials RH were also daubed on the statue, perhaps a reference to Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler's deputy, who flew to Britain at the height of the Second World War to allegedly try and make peace.

Instead, Churchill had him thrown in prison in 1941, and the war continued for a further four years.
