Vandals twice trashed a memorial to a young man only a month before the second anniversary of his death in a car accident.Oh, my goodness! In which graveyard or cemetery did this awful thing occur?
Flowers and ribbons placed in memory of Jay Aaron Ansell were found strewn across the floor by his family.
They found a plaque hanging “in loving memory” of the 20-year-old thrown in a ditch and damaged.Ah. Never mind. Not a memorial at all, just another of those tacky litter ‘shrines’ that get put up where someone hit a tree.
The family reported the damage to the police, who are investigating.Wha..?
A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “Flowers and ribbons which had been put round the tree had been scattered. The plaque had been damaged, taken off the tree and thrown into a ditch.
"Extra tributes were put out and within an hour of that happening they had been scattered around again.
“We are looking for a dark blue Ford Focus seen going in the direction of Burgess Hill.”
