Breaking News

A repairs package aimed at restoring the nation's damaged war memorials has been unveiled by English Heritage.

Forty memorials will receive handouts for work including stonework repair, cleaning and metal conservation.

Among the memorials which benefited this year are one outside Sheffield City Hall, a village cross in Devon and one destroyed by vandals in Merseyside.

The award is the largest in the history of the six-year-old scheme run by the War Memorials Trust.

Memorials offered grants this year have ranged from major city centre monuments to small village crosses.
