Paint daubed across seafront monument

Vandals have caused outrage after defacing a Swansea war memorial with red painted slogans.

The monument, close to the former 360 cafe on the seafront, is covered in the words 'smash troops' and 'empire out!'

The South African War Memorial was paid for by public subscription and unveiled in 1904 to the memory of the Swansea men who lost their lives in the South African War (1900-1902).

Comments on Facebook have branded the vandals 'disgusting', 'scumbags' and 'filth'.
