Memorial disgrace woman spared jail



A woman branded "Britain's most disgusting person" by veterans after she was convicted of urinating on a war memorial has been given a suspended sentence.

Wendy Lewis, 32, was caught on CCTV relieving herself on the cenotaph in the town before performing a sex act on a man in public.

Lewis was sentenced at Blackpool Magistrates' Court to 15 weeks in prison suspended for a year after fleeing an earlier hearing on Friday when she was met by a group of veterans, wearing berets and with campaign medals on their blazers, who lined the court steps to form a "guard of dishonour".

Wendy Lewis acted "recklessly" in kicking the police officer

A woman who urinated on a war memorial has admitted assaulting a female police officer as she was being re-arrested after fleeing court.

Wendy Lewis, 32, kicked her twice during the arrest in Blackpool on Tuesday, Blackpool magistrates heard.

Lewis had been on the run after leaving court on Friday before being sentenced for relieving herself on a Blackpool cenotaph, which she earlier admitted.

She will be sentenced later for the assault and a public decency offence.

Lewis of Princess Street, Blackpool, who was caught on CCTV relieving herself at the memorial in May had been given a "guard of dishonour" by veterans at her original hearing.

Allan Cobain, defending, said Lewis, a mother-of-two, accepted she kicked the police officer but did not do it deliberately.

He said: "She acted recklessly."

The former heroin addict pleaded guilty to one count of assaulting a police officer and was found guilty of outraging public decency last week.

Magistrates heard on Friday that following her urination Lewis had performed a sex act on a man nearby.

Wendy Lewis, who has been convicted of desecrating the war memorial

THE mother-of-two branded "Britain's most disgusting woman" has issued a grovelling apology after she was caught desecrating Blackpool's Cenotaph.

On Battle of Britain weekend Wendy Lewis remained on the run with a warrant for her arrest yet to be executed by police.

She ran from Blackpool Magistrates Court after being confronted by a group of war heroes. They gave her a guard of dishonour for her act of desecration at the town centre war memorial.

In a statement issued on her behalf, Lewis from Grange Park, said: "I was extremely intoxicated when I did what I did." "My life has been hell on earth ever since."

"I only realise now the impact of what happened on those who served in the armed forces."

"I was unfortunate enough to become involved in a relationship with a much older man, who I later discovered abused heroin." "I tried to help him but I was dragged into his lifestyle, was abused by him and ended up taking the drug.

"I have had two children but both of them have been taken away from me." "Nothing can minimise the seriousness of what I have done."

"I realise what offence this has caused to a wider public but on that night I had a complete lack of awareness of what I was doing."

"I can only apologise. And apologise again."

Magistrates issued a warrant for the 43-year-old's arrest after she failed to obey instructions for probation officers based at the court not to leave the building where reports on her lifestyle were being prepared on her.

She had been found guilty in her absence at a previous hearing when magistrates asked for the reports. Despite demands by war veterans that she be jailed she has already been told by justices she will merely face a medium term community punishment, which will mean doing unpaid work for the community.

This could include working in a charity shop. She will however face an allegation that she breached the terms of her bail by leaving the court house claiming that she had urgent family business.

One of her neighbours said yesterday: "Everyone knows what she has done. "She will never be able to hold her head up high in this area again." "The police have been banging on her door but she is not there."

War memorials deserve special protection

Monuments are threatened by more than the grotesque antics
of a few drunks, says Philip Johnston

A woman looks at wreaths beside the war memorial last year in Wootton Basset last November

Few actions are calculated to cause greater offence than the desecration of a war memorial. The "guard of dishonour" formed by Army veterans outside a courthouse for Wendy Lewis, who urinated on a memorial in Blackpool, was a fitting show of national disgust for her actions – such an exquisite humiliation that it should, one trusts, haunt the culprit for the rest of her life. Perhaps that is punishment enough. But should we go further and have a specific crime of defacing a war memorial that better reflects the strength of public revulsion and which carries a condign penalty?

David Burrowes, the Tory MP for Enfield Southgate, thinks we should. He has written to Cabinet ministers arguing that existing laws are insufficiently robust for this particular offence. If a war memorial is damaged, it receives no greater protection than any other edifice: the cost is assessed purely in financial terms, not for what the monument symbolises. Unless the bill for repairs exceeds £5,000, the maximum sentence that the magistrates court can hand down is three months in prison.

Mr Burrowes wants desecrating a war memorial to be a specific crime carrying a prison term of up to 10 years.

"We must increase the protection of war memorials by ensuring there is proper punishment when we catch the culprits," he said. "This is vandalism against the memories of this country. There needs to be immediate action to address this gap in the law."

Instinctively, I am opposed to the creation of yet another criminal offence on top of the 3,000 or so new ones we have seen since 1997. Furthermore, why should a war memorial be given greater protection than a church or a gravestone? There is also motive to take into account. The desecration carried out by Lewis was the result of excessive drinking and says more about the booze culture among a section of our society than it does about their disdain for the sacrifices of our war dead.

This was once a crime that was simply unheard of yet there have been four cases before the courts in just a year. Lewis was so drunk she could not remember anything about the incident. Neither could Phillip Laing, the Sheffield student pictured urinating on a war memorial during an organised pub crawl. They were charged with offending public decency and sentenced to lengthy terms of community service, which on balance seems the right punishment given the stigma attached to what they have done. They should be required to help in the upkeep of war memorials.

However, there is another type of desecration that is pre-meditated and more worryingly provocative than the grotesque antics of a few drunken morons – memorials are being defaced with politically or religiously motivated graffiti. Last year, Tohseef Shah, daubed a war memorial with graffiti glorifying Osama bin Laden and proclaiming "Islam will dominate the world". He received a conditional discharge from magistrates after admitting criminal damage, a penalty seen by many as far too lenient.

Since the last government went to great lengths to create religiously aggravated offences carrying substantial penalties, it is hard to understand why Shah was not charged with the more serious crime. The religious hatred law is a seriously bad piece of legislation; but since it is on the statute book would it not be better to use it rather than pass yet another? There are also crimes of incitement that could be used to punish attacks intended to stir up trouble.

But there is a wider point here, too. If we are to take umbrage at the way some people, for whatever reason, treat our war memorials then we should make sure they are looked after. It is not even clear how many there are – some estimates suggest 100,000 – and no formal register exists, though the War Memorials Trust hopes to complete one in time for the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War in 2014. Because most of Britain's war memorials were built through local fund-raising, there is no central body responsible for their maintenance. Some are owned by local authorities, churches and schools, while the ownership of others is uncertain.

Although many memorials are well looked after, others are in a state of disrepair. When buildings are demolished to make way for new developments, or schools move from one site to another, the plaques in memory of former employees or pupils who fell in battle are often lost. Others are stolen, usually for scrap: Mr Burrowes was prompted to start campaigning when the bronze plaques bearing the names of war dead were removed from the memorial in his constituency.

Even if a specific offence of desecration is judged unnecessary and is eventually ruled out, there might still be a case for defining all war memorials in statute in order to afford them extra protection from reckless development or neglect.

Notwithstanding the disgusting antics of a few drunks, as the centenary of the start of the Great War approaches, we need to ensure that they retain their special place in our national story.

Warrant for woman who urinated on Blackpool memorial

Wendy Lewis

Wendy Lewis ran off down the courthouse steps before her sentence was due to be passed

A woman who fled court minutes before she was due to be sentenced for urinating on a Blackpool war memorial is being sought by Lancashire Police.

Wendy Lewis was jeered by veterans as she arrived at Blackpool Magistrate's Court on Friday for sentencing.

The 32-year-old, from Blackpool, had been caught on CCTV urinating on the memorial on 7 May, before performing a sex act on a man in public.

Lancashire Police confirmed that a warrant is being issued for her arrest.

Covering her head with a hood, Lewis swore at former soldiers as she arrived at court on Friday.

The veterans had gathered to form what they described as a "Guard of dishonour" and called out "disgusting" at her as she passed.

Lewis was last seen running down the courthouse steps and away into the town.

She had been found guilty of outraging public decency at an earlier hearing.

Cenotaph outrage woman flees court as veterans stage 'guard of dishonour'

A woman who desecrated a war memorial fled from a court in disgrace after veterans turned out to give her a “guard of dishonour”


Veterans groups organised the informal protest after details of her conviction were reported locally

Former servicemen, dressed in medals and berets, lined the entrance to Blackpool Magistrates’ Court as Wendy Lewis arrived to be sentenced for urinating and performing a sex act at the town’s cenotaph.

The 32-year-old from Blackpool was found guilty of outraging public decency in her absence earlier this month following a drunken incident in June.

Veterans groups organised the informal protest after details of her conviction were reported locally and she was labelled “Britain's most disgusting person”.

As she walked into the building yesterday, her face covered in a hood, she was given a slow hand clap by the servicemen, who accused her of dishonouring the memory of the dead.

She swore at the assembled veterans, several of whom stood supported by walking sticks, as she walked into the building but fled only minutes later before she could be sentenced, forcing magistrates to issue a warrant for her arrest.

"She showed what she really is, she can’t take her punishment – she showed us the white flag,” said Major Jim Houldsworth, vice-chairman of the Fylde Ex-Service Liaison Committee.

The show of anger at Lewis’s actions follows a series of cases of war memorials being desecrated.

Last year Philip Laing, a 19-year-old former public schoolboy admitted urinating on a war memorial in Sheffield during a seven-hour student pub crawl.

He was ordered to carry out community service after apologising and attending his hearing at the city’s magistrates’ court wearing a poppy.

In June of this year, a judge at Leeds Crown Court reduced a sentence imposed on 49-year Ian Marshall who admitted urinating on a war memorial in the city’s Headingley area on a drunken night out.

A court heard that he allegedly told a church verger who challenged him "who cares, they're all dead anyway," comments which he denies.

An order to carry out 160 hours community service was reduced to a £500 fine by Judge James Spencer on appeal.

In May a Muslim who sprayed graffiti glorifying Osama bin Laden and predicting world domination for Islam on a memorial walked free from court after prosecutors decided his crime was not racially or religiously motivated.

Tohseef Shah, 21, was given a conditional discharge for criminal damage to the monument in Burton upon Trent, Staffs, after the Crown Prosecution Service said there was not enough evidence to bring more serious charges.

Blackpool Magistrates court heard that police were called to the cenotaph near the town’s North Pier in June this year after CCTV operators told them a woman was relieving herself on the monument.

When they arrived they found Lewis performing a sex act on a man sat on a bench next to a row of poppies.

The man was also arrested for being drunk and disorderly but was later released.

James Baker, 88, one of only two men from his 38-strong unit of Royal Marines to survive the D-Day landings, said: "This woman is a disgrace to her sex because the young women of Britain in both wars distinguished themselves and they deserve their recognition.

“She has insulted the good name of every soldier named on that memorial just for some puerile pleasure worthy of a common alley cat.

"The men named on that memorial died for their country so the people like this woman could be live in freedom.”

Now - we've all registered our displeasure at that young male student in Sheffield who pissed all over the poppies at Barker's Pool, Sheffield - but the logistics of this vision of loveliness having a pee on a war memorial just beggars belief. AND, she went on to committ a sex act on the memorial ! Just how low can you sink, even with a belly full of booze ?

War veterans all calling for Wendy Lewis to be jailed

Wendy Lewis admitted outraging public decency when she appeared at Blackpool Magistrates' Court.

War veterans formed a "guard of dishonour" when she walked into court last week - and are calling for her to be jailed as an example to others.

Lewis, 32, was caught on CCTV drunkenly urinating on the town centre Cenotaph.

When police arrived they found her performing a sex act on a man sitting on the memorial.

Ian Coleman, president of the Royal British Legion Association in Blackpool, told the Blackpool Gazette: "This woman is the most disgusting person in this country.

"She has defiled the name of our war dead. She deserves to be clamped on heavily. It should be an automatic prison sentence."

Major Jim Houldsworth, vice-chairman of the Fylde Ex-Service Liaison Committee, told the paper: "This was a disgusting act. How on earth do you think the parents of the soldiers feel about someone urinating on their memory?

"I feel a custodial sentence would be appropriate."

Lewis' case was adjourned last Friday for the preparation of pre-sentence reports.

Swastikas have been daubed on the monument in the past


War veterans are calling for a woman who urinated and performed a sex act on Blackpool's war monument to be jailed.

Wendy Lewis was convicted in her absence of outraging public decency at Blackpool Magistrates' Court on Friday.

The 32-year-old, of Princess Street, who failed to appear in court, was caught on CCTV relieving herself before performing a sex act on a man on 7 May.

Ian Coleman, president of the town's British Legion, said: "It's a sacrilege to those who didn't come home."

He called for the magistrates to jail her and not just "give her a slap on the wrists".

'Respect for mankind'

"In the past two years we have had at least four incidents when the memorial has been desecrated.

"Swastikas have been daubed by the names of our brave men who fought to give us the freedom we have today - a freedom which some, unfortunately do not deserve."

Several ex-servicemen and women gathered outside Blackpool Magistrates' Court to show their disgust at Friday's hearing.

They have also stood on the court steps in honour of their fallen comrades in response to other court cases involving the desecration of war monuments in the town.

Mr Coleman added: "We want the court to set an example to stop this from happening again.

"A few years ago we had rangers patrolling the area near the monument but now we just have CCTV.

"To be honest, we just need people to have a decent attitude and respect for mankind."

A warrant has been issued for Lewis' arrest.

Police hunt 'Britain's most disgusting woman'


A hunt was on Sunday for the woman branded "Britain's most disgusting person" for urinating on a war memorial after she fled court following a public shaming by elderly veterans

An arrest warrant is out for Wendy Lewis, 32, who was given a "guard of dishonour" by angry veterans when she appeared at Blackpool Magistrates Court.

She was caught on security cameras relieving herself on the seaside town's Cenotaph, before performing a sex act on a man nearby.

Lewis was found guilty of outraging public decency and was due to be sentenced Friday.

But after turning up 40 minutes late at court, she vanished before her case began.

Veterans wearing smart uniforms and campaign medals lined up outside to give her a slow handclap. They shouted "Disgusting!" at she went inside.

"It is unforgivable what she did in the face of these dead men," said former Royal Marine James Baker, 88, who was one of few from his unit who survived the Normandy Landings.

"It can be neither forgiven nor forgotten by the ex-services' community and the wider community as well.

"If she had expressed remorse, and meant it, we could forgive then, if not forget. But I'm sorry, she is just beyond the pale."

Alongside him was Don Aiken, 85, who also saw action on D-Day.

He said: "We have all come to show our disgust at the actions of this woman on the Cenotaph, which is sacred to ex-servicemen personally, because it holds the names of so many of our comrades who died in two world wars to defend the freedom of our nation."

If Lewis is arrested Sunday she will be held in the cells until court resumes Monday.

Lewis was dubbed "Britain's most disgusting person" by Ian Coleman, of the Royal British Legion veterans' charity, after an earlier court appearance.

Veterans have demanded a woman be jailed later this week after she was caught urinating on a war memorial, and then performing a sex act

Wendy Lewis was branded "Britain's most disgusting person" after admitting outraging public decency at Blackpool Magistrates' Court.

Old soldiers formed a "guard of dishonour" when she appeared, hours late, for the hearing before JPs.

Veterans believe she should be put behind bars to set an example to others.

Drunken Lewis, 32, of Princess Street, Blackpool, was seen relieving herself on the town's Cenotaph by CCTV operators in June.

When police arrived they found her performing a sex act on a man sitting on the memorial.

Conservative councillor Julian Mineur, a former soldier and an organiser of Shop for Heroes, set up to help veterans in the resort, said: "The veterans community are outraged at this sort of action, particularly by a local person, taking place on a consecrated piece of ground.

"We feel a strong message has to be sent out this sort of thing should not be tolerated and is despicable.

"The Cenotaph is sacrosanct. There is a huge amount of public outrage on this in the town and across the country."

Lewis' case was adjourned on Friday for the preparation of pre-sentence reports. She is now scheduled to be sentenced this Friday.
