A tribute made to Lynn street entertainer Anthony Bowen, better known as Juggling Jim, has been wrecked.

Flowers, guitars and juggling equipment were among the items left at the bench next to the Wimpy restaurant in the town after he passed away in January.

Sally Beadle, also known as Crazy Bananas, is a fellow entertainer and friend of Jim, who said: “The temporary tribute to Jim has been vandalised. Disgusted that people could behave like this.”

She said items had been removed, kicked and broken, including the guitar which had its top taken off.
