The Friends of the Czech Memorial Fountain in Jephson Gardens have remembered the deaths of seven paratroopers.

The annual commemoration and wreath-laying marked 75 years since the paratroopers died in the crypt of a Prague church following the assassination of high-ranking Nazi official Reinhard Heydrich.

Among those who laid wreaths were officers from the Czech and Slovak embassies in London, along with Warwick and Leamington MP Matt Western, chair of Warwick District Council Alan Boad and Leamington Mayor Caroline Evetts.
