Anglican Chapel Severly Vandalised and Mocked

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: May 8, 2022

St. Mary's church near Saxton, Yorkshire, which is an important listed building, was vandalized by anonymous intruders on May 8th. A volunteer group that takes care of the chapel wrote on Facebook: "A sickening sight this morning...litter, smashed vases, glass everywhere, and worst of all the crosses broken too. To add insult to injury, a note of apology with a fake phone number," was also left there. The chapel stands in an isolated field and has often been a place of refuge.

The volunteer group added: "There's nothing to be done, everything is cleared and mended but I wanted to share what we have to deal with sometimes."
