The people of Marlow have reacted angrily to the news that religious monuments that were built by a woman who was brutally killed have been vandalised.

Tina Choules, 81, died in the summer of 2016 after Lithuanian-born Tautrydas Narbutas attacked her in her Marlow Bottom home.

A devout Buddhist, Tina, along with her late-husband Michael, spent years building stupas in the village which are used as a place to meditate.

In total, there are 10 in the village but two of them have been vandalised which has led to local resident, Michael Kemp, fixing the monuments.

However, after he repaired them, they were again damaged just weeks later.

Jenny Roblett said: “What is wrong with people these days?”

Ruth Atkinson added: “I came across a couple of these just before a trip to climb high stuff in Nepal when I was stomping around training.

“I was a tad surprised to find them but kind of saw it as good luck!

“Sad this lady is no longer with us.

“When/if caught these vandals need education about what it all means.”

Mavis Rouse then said: “Why, oh, why do some people like to destroy?

“I suppose because it’s easier to destroy than to create.

“So sad.”

Many people in Marlow Bottom have since spoken about the idea of implementing CCTV in the area, whilst some have offered to help tidy up the area as well as fix the damaged stupas.
