A SILHOUETTE commemorating the fallen in the First World War has been damaged by vandals for a second time in a week, and is now beyond repair.

The 'Silent Soldier' silhouette marks 100 years since the ending of the First World War, but has now suffered damage twice in the space of week courtesy of vandals.

Video taken last Wednesday after initial damage to 'Silent Soldier' silhouette

Last Wednesday, damages of the silhouette were reported to police after it had found to have bent and scratched.

But the damage on this occasion leaves the silhouette beyond all reasonable repair, there are visible foot prints on the silhouette suggesting it has been kicked over, and Mold Town Council must now decide whether to purchase a new one to put in its place.

The vandalism was done some time during Monday evening into Tuesday morning, and stands as a particularly difficult act to understand with what the silhouette represents.

Samantha Roberts, Mold Town Clerk, said: ''It's so upsetting to experience a second attempt in a week to deface the Silent Soldier.

''The silhouette commemorates the countless young men, many from Mold who, who gave their lives in the First World War and wars that have followed.

''Anyone with information that could help find those responsible contact North Wales Police.''
