The shrine to a much-loved street entertainer has been vandalised.
Flowers and tributes were left in memory of Anthony Bowen, who died of a suspected cardiac arrest on January 23.
Mr Bowen, who was known as Juggling Jim, was a familiar sight in the centre of King's Lynn, where he performed slapstick juggling and guitar routines.
Juggling equipment and guitars were left outside the Wimpy Bar, near the spot in the High Street where he performed.
But overnight bunches of flowers have been kicked away, items have been removed and a guitar left by one mourner has been smashed.

More than 300 attended Mr Bowen's funeral at Lynn Minster last month.
Most heard the story of his troubled life for the first time. Canon Christopher Ivory said: 'Often we hear that behind a comedian is a broken heart but he still made us smile.'
