The eco-soldier who caused a fury by dumping a bucket of human excrement on the memorial to Captain Sir Tom Moore could face criminal charges.
Derbyshire Police have been alerted to footage of former medical student Maddie Budd, 21, targeting a tribute to the beloved national hero.
Video of the stunt, made for pressure group End UK Private Jets, has been turned over to police.
It will be scrutinized by experts, who will decide if the action crosses the criminal damage threshold.
Ms Budd filmed herself dumping containers of feces and urine on the memorial to the late captain, who made international headlines in 2020 when he raised money for charity ahead of his 100th birthday during the Covid-19 pandemic.
And in a bizarre justification, she later posted a video claiming: ‘People will say he’s a hero, people will say this is disrespectful to his life. in a poignant, obscene way and to the NHS that he has supported and I agree with.
‘I’m studying to be a doctor because I believe in taking care of people. If we believe the NHS is important, if we believe in taking care of each other, if we believe that NHS workers are doing essential jobs, why force our health care system? Why do we fall, why do we force our civilization to fall, why does no one basically take this genocide of all humanity seriously?
‘All of this is true and the Government is not even going to end UK private jets, every time one takes off it will dump a bucket of sh** and blood on everything that it doesn’t. Captain Tom represented’
The backlash to the move has become so severe that it has prompted threats to force police charges against ecosystem fanatics.

The vandalized memorial is in tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore, who made international headlines in 2020 when he raised funds for charity ahead of his 100th birthday during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ms Budd tried to justify her insult to the memorial by claiming that ‘every time a [private jet] take off, it pours a bucket of sh*t and blood on everything that Captain Tom has represented’
Captain Tom started walking the 100 lengths of his garden at the age of 99 in 2020, with the aim of donating £1,000 to NHS charities on his 100th birthday on 30 April.
However, thanks to the presence of the media, his efforts have captured the imagination of the whole country and by the day of his birthday he has raised more than £30 million. He is considered a national treasure by his death on February 2, 2021 after catching Covid.
Ms Budd’s act of vandalism against the beloved captain, who was awarded a medal by the RAF and the British Army on his 100th birthday and even knighted by the Queen, caused predictable public outrage.
‘How will this convince people to make money using private jets?’ wrote a Twitter user. ‘It looked like a kid going on a disgusting rampage and couldn’t be more respectful. This kind of behavior won’t convince anyone to make any changes. ‘
Another wrote: ‘Hopefully she goes to jail for this. Doesn’t help your cause at all, if anything I’m against you and your cause. Really disgusting, you should stay away from this shameful behavior, don’t support it. ‘
While a third raised questions about why Ms Budd is no longer a medical student.
‘Former medical student? What is she now? Or is it too embarrassing to go public. ‘
