POLICE have branded as “despicable” the damage caused to 50 grave stones at St Mary Magdalene's Church in Lillington.
The grave stones were damaged over two separate occasions – on January 31 and February 28 – according to details only just released by Warwickshire Police.
Many were toppled over, causing damage to the stonework incurring significant costs in restoring them to their correct positions.
Community beat manager, PC Jon Belcher, said "These despicable incidents have no apparent purpose but have caused significant upset to friends and relatives and those in the church community.
"Members of the team will be completing extra patrols in the area and I would encourage anyone who saw anything suspicious around January 31 or February 28 to contact us.”
Warwickshire Police would also like to hear from relatives of those whose grave stones have been damaged, so that full details can be recorded, on telephone number 101, quoting incident number 163.
