Wales - Man admits defacing North Wales war memorial with Nazi and antisemitic graffiti

A man who daubed Nazi and antisemitic graffiti on a war memorial today admitted committing racially-aggravated criminal damage.

Gareth Jack Bradley, 31, of Morlan Park, Rhyl, caused disgust after daubing a swastika, an Iron Cross and vile messages including “choke on chlorine Tommy” at the town last February.

Prosecutor James Neary at Llandudno court said Bradley had targeted a member of the Jewish community previously.

He urged that the present case should be sentenced by a crown court judge.


Defence solicitor Craig Hutchinson said Bradley had been “sectioned” under the mental health act and his situation had improved.

District Judge Paul Conlon said: ”The offences are too serious for this court to deal with.” Bradley was granted bail until he’s sentenced by a crown court judge next month."
