A local council have caused outrage among residents by ordering that a memorial bench to a dead war hero be removed - because the family did not get permission for the tribute.
The heartbroken family of former Royal Marine Corporal Tony Sutcliff designed a special Remembrance bench to be placed where his ashes had been scattered on Baildon Moor, West Yorkshire last year.
