A British World War I cemetery in northeastern France's Pas-de-Calais region has been desecrated.

Vandals daubed 12 soldiers' graves with pink swastikas and other Nazi signs.

The cemetery in the town of Loos-en-Gohelle holds the remains of British and Canadian soldiers who died while fighting in an October 1915 battle there.

The graves are all believed to have been vandalised overnight.

France's minister for veterans, Hubert Falco slammed the actions as "an insult to the memory" of the soldiers and an "insult to France."
