1poppA man has sparked fury after being filmed throwing Remembrance poppy wreaths from the steps of a park war memorial – SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH.

As park-goers looked on in horror, the man moved along, systematically clearing the floral tributes to the war dead in Watts Park, Southampton. Wearing a coat, shorts and trainers, the man removed the emotive symbols, placed there earlier this month for Remembrance Day.  He also appeared to kick and stand on the floral tributes to those who gave their lives in battle.

The person who posted the shocking footage on Facebook said she has reported the incident to police.  She commented on the post: “Was walking through the park this afternoon and saw this man trashing the memorial in the park. Not sure who he is but it’s disgusting and I hope he gets caught!”
