The Nurses’ Memorial on Anzac Parade was vandalised yesterday. By the time I got there this morning, someone had been along with CAUTION tape and black plastic and covered the broken panel up. It’s on the inside of the memorial, so the damage is not actually visible from the road on either side.
Police say the damage this time was suspicious, unlike when a panel was damaged a few years ago which was put down to heat stress. The panels cost about $80,000 to replace.
