Fury erupted yesterday after a pro-statue demonstrator urinated beside the memorial for a policeman who was killed by in the Westminster terrorist attack. PC Keith Palmer stabbed to death during the Westminster terror attack in 2017. The man was seen urinating next to the memorial during violent clashes in London yesterday.
Courts correspondent for the Evening Standard Tristan Kirk Said: “A man suspected of urinating of PC Keith Palmer’s memorial in Westminster yesterday has been arrested, after handing himself in to police in Essex.”
The incident led to several politicians expressing their disgust after the man was photographed during the violent clashes between far-right protesters and police in central London yesterday.
Words of condemnation came from the Home Secretary Priti Patel.
She branded the incident as “absolutely appalling and shameful”.
Morning television’s Piers Morgan has tweeted about the incident.
He said: “Beyond contempt.
“One of the thugs in London today to ‘save our country’ from people defacing memorials is caught urinating on the memorial for hero PC Keith Palmer who died as he tackled a terrorist and was awarded a posthumous George Medal.”
There are now calls from the Met Police Federation for the man to be jailed for his actions.
