It’s very upsetting when  monuments in the churchyard for village people who have died are damaged. Sadly this is what has happened this evening, 26th July in St Peter’s churchyard around  6 to 6.30 pm.

A youth seemingly took pot shots at some of the monuments on the south side of the public footpath by throwing granite rocks at them. The top of one monument, an urn dedicated to Arthur Hurd, has been broken into several pieces, and another dedicated to Thomas and Lucy Ellen Smith is slightly damaged.  

If any one has any information or CCTV footage please contact or Leicestershire police, incident number 51826721
