War silhouettes installed to honour British soldiers which were destroyed by vandals are set to be replaced.

Great Yarmouth based manufacturers Display Products Limited have vowed to reinstall the Tommy silhouette statues which were vandalised in the Great Yarmouth Market Place on Friday, October 26.

The ten statues were revealed as part of the “There But Not There” campaign but were damaged just 48 hours later.

The damage left people outraged with one person calling the attacks a “disgrace”.

Simon Clarke, 46, of Display Products Limited, said the company has spoke to the borough council and will replace the perspex Tommies using stronger material.

He said: “We were shocked when we heard the news and thought as a local company we would be able to help. It is great to be able to do something like this.

“We will make them much stronger.”

Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Mary Coleman has thanked the company for its generosity saying “we are so grateful for their help”.
