A special Christmas statue at St Albans Abbey station has been vandalised.
St Albans Business Improvement District (BID) has removed the Nutcracker soldier statue after it was damaged last night.
BID organised the statues for their Nutcracker Trail, and BID manager Helen Burridge said: “This is a senseless and silly act of needless vandalism.
“Local businesses funded the Nutcracker Trail through their contributions to St Albans BID and we are all upset by what has happened.
“We will be removing the nutcracker for the time being and it will be replaced before the weekend.

“Let’s not give those responsible any further attention. We can continue to celebrate the trail and the festive cheer it brings!
