Framlingham College have apologised after a student doctored an image of a banner commemorating Britain’s war heroes with a swastika before it was shared online.

The banner, depicting the silhouette of a soldier, was altered to include the Nazi symbol by a student.

The image was then shared with another student, who posted it on social media.

Framlingham College said the pair were immediately suspended as a result of the incident.

Louise North, principal of the college, said: "I apologise unreservedly for the offence caused by the behaviour of these pupils, which contradicts in the strongest terms the ethos of this school.
