A man has been cautioned and ordered to apologise to war veterans after he was seen urinating near a war memorial on Remembrance Sunday.
Police said the 21-year-old was seen relieving himself by Bristol’s Cenotaph in Colston Avenue at 02:20 GMT.
Police detained him for several hours on suspicion of committing an act of outraging public decency.
He has since been released and is “required to send a letter of apology to the Royal British Legion”.
The Avon and Somerset Police spokesman added he would also have to attend a victim awareness course, which he would have to pay for himself.
He said if the man failed to comply with the conditions of the caution, his case “would be referred to the courts”.
A Remembrance Day service and parade with the Lord Mayor, veterans, reserve units and cadets was held at 11:00 GMT.
