AN eco zealot who poured urine and faeces over a memorial to Captain Sir Tom Moore has been spared jail.
Madeleine Budd, 21, was protesting against private jets when she defaced the tribute to the World War Two veteran, who raised £33million for the NHS during the pandemic when aged 100.
Former medical student Budd admitted causing £200 of damage to the memorial in Derbyshire last month.
She was told by district judge Louisa Cieciora: “You did what you did to cause the maximum amount of distress and outrage.”
Budd, of Manchester, was sentenced to 21 weeks’ jail, suspended for 18 months, at Westminister magistrates’ court.
She was also ordered to pay £200 compensation.
