"Cofiwch Dryweryn"

…de la BBC:

An unofficial memorial to a village flooded 42 years ago to provide water for Liverpool has been repainted after being defaced.

The landmark near Aberystwyth once again reads Cofiwch Dryweryn (Remember Tryweryn), but it had been altered to Angofiwch Dryweryn (Forget Tryweryn).

The defacing upset some local people, who described the site in Ceredigion as a "national landmark".

The wall was repainted overnight on Monday.

The slogan was painted shortly after Tryweryn, near Bala, disappeared in 1966...
