Experts have so far failed to repair the damage done in the early hours of Monday.

The footage shows a man walking around the memorial, and appearing to spray the wall, just after 3am.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said officers were examining the footage and that the investigation was "very much still ongoing".

No arrests have been made so far.

Similar graffiti was daubed on the nearby Animals in War memorial, also in the aftermath of the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich.
