The Tom Simpson Memorial on Mont Ventoux, France, has blown over in galeforce winds. The top half of the stone appears to have snapped at its base, and fallen backwards off its plinth.

Dutch website posted up a photograph of the snapped memorial stone on Wednesday. Local builders will inspect the damage as soon as possible and provide an estimate for its repair.
