Framlingham: Anger at damage to Royal wedding display

VANDALS have tried to spoil a town’s celebrations for the Royal wedding by damaging a display and stealing a Union Flag.

But business leaders in Framlingham have pledged that “reckless idiots” will not affect their plans for the big day.

The town is being turned red, white and blue ahead of a big party on April 29 to celebrate the wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton.

But the work suffered a setback overnight on both Friday and Saturday when flagpoles were snapped and broken – one beyond repair – and a flag was stolen.

More than 70 flags have been put up around the town centre in recent days, along with hundreds of metres of bunting.

Bill Bulstrode, chair of the Framlingham Business Association, said: “It’s very disappointing that someone would do this.

“Everyone is saying how brilliant the town is looking and I can’t understand why these reckless idiots can’t just leave it alone.

“But we will replace the flagpoles and they will stay up for the Gala at the end of May.”

Framlingham will have a big screen, hog roast and a host of entertainment for the Royal Wedding.
