Sick attack on memorial.

THE mother of murdered British soldier Stephen Restorick is outraged that a memorial to her son has been vandalised.

The bench plaque was scrawled over and defaced just days after his IRA killer, Bernard McGinn, was sentenced to life imprisonment.

The plaque was put up at Holy Trinity Church, in Peterborough, six months ago in memory of Lance Bombardier Restorick.

He was shot while manning a border checkpoint in Bessbrook in 1997.

His heartbroken mother, Rita, said: "It is par for the course these days."

McGinn could be free in just 16 months under the Good Friday Agreement.
