I’ll update if and when the suspect is apprehended. Until then it is anybody’s guess who and what the balaclavaed hooligan is.

Update: “African appearance”; possible muslim.

(Daily Express UK) –The man, of African appearance, is captured moving in and out of the shadows to spray the monument in London in the early hours on Monday.

The Monument to the 55,573 Bomber Command veterans lost in the Second World War, which was opened by the Queen last June, had the word “Islam” sprayed on it in red paint.

The same night the £2million Animals At War memorial nearby was plastered with the word “Islam” and other messages, also in red paint.

The damage came days after the murder of soldier Lee Rigby, 25, allegedly by Islamic extremists of African origin.

Footage from cameras linked to the RAF Club in Piccadilly opposite the memorial shows a man approaching it between 3.10am and 3.20am on Monday.

Wearing a woolly hat and a loose jacket he makes a phone call, then looks around shiftily before spraying a couple of letters on the facade.

He stops and darts into the shadows just before traffic comes past. After looking around, he sprays more letters on the memorial. He moves inside to the statue of seven airmen before walking briskly off towards Knightsbridge.

While he is inside the memorial a car, which resembles an Audi RS4, pulls up for a few minutes before driving off.
