Swastikas anger MPs

    The desecration of a war memorial involving Nazi graffiti has been condemned by MPs.

    Vandals drew swastikas and comments praising the Nazis on the British Thomson Houston memorial in Rugby, Warwickshire.

    The memorial pays tribute to 418 workers from an engineering company based in the town, who lost their lives in both world wars.

    Rugby MP Mark Pawsey raised the "alarming" attack in the House of Commons during a debate last Thursday.

    Mr Pawsey, who is due to visit Auschwitz later this month on a trip arranged by the Holocaust Educational Trust, said the graffiti were "outrageous".

    In response, George Young, leader of the House of Commons, said: "I was appalled, as I am sure that the whole House was, to hear that Nazi graffiti has been scrawled on a memorial to those who gave their lives in the service of this country.

    "I very much hope that the police are trying to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice."
