Campaigners have attacked a memorial to Captain Tom Moore in Derbyshire. A protestor campaigning against the use of private jets in the UK.

Derbyshire Live reports that Maddie Budd, 21, poured faeces and urine over the statue of the late British Army Officer, in Thistley Meadow, in Hatton, Derbyshire.

Captain Sir Tom Moore rose to prominence during the Covid-19 pandemic when he embarked on a quest to complete 100 walks around his garden in a bid to help raise money for NHS Charities. By the time he turned 100 years old, he had raised £32.79 million.

A video of the incident has appeared on the campaign group End UK Private Jets' social media pages.

Speaking about her protest, Maddie Budd, who is a former medical student from Wales, said: "People are going to say that he's a hero, people are going to say that this is profoundly, obscenely disrespectful to his life, and to the NHS he stood up for and I agree.

"I was studying to become a doctor because I believe in taking care of people. If we believe that the NHS is important, if we believe in taking care of each other, if we believe that NHS workers are doing essential work, why are forcing our healthcare system into collapse, why are we forcing our civilisation into collapse, why is basically no-one taking this genocide of all humanity seriously?

"All of this is true and the Government won't even End UK Private Jets, every time one takes off, it pours a bucket of sh*t and blood onto everything that Captain Tom stood for".

Captain Tom Moore was knighted by Her Majesty the Queen at Windsor Castle in July 2020 and he received over 150,000 cards on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Captain Sir Tom Moore died on February 2, 2021, at Bedford Hospital.

End UK Private Jets is a group protesting against luxurious and unnecessary carbon emissions, focusing on the use of private jets in the UK.
