War plaques 'stolen for bronze' (UK)





Bronze memorials to British soldiers killed in the world wars have been stolen in north London by thieves thought to have sold them for scrap.

The plaques, which also list civilians killed in the Blitz, were taken from a memorial in Broomfield Park, Enfield.

It comes after the 204th British serviceman died in Afghanistan. Some 179 UK troops have now died in Iraq.
