A memorial commemorating 100 years since the end of World War One has been vandalised days after being unveiled.
The work, which includes a 10ft (3m) statue of a Sikh soldier, honours service personnel of all faiths from the Indian subcontinent who fought for Britain during WW1.
Sandwell Council said the graffiti on the £30,000 sculpture in Smethwick was “very disappointing”.
Police are treating it as racially aggravated criminal damage.
