Criminals swinging sledgehammers have destroyed ancient gravestones at a World Heritage church in an appalling gaffe as tourists watched in horror the stones smash it into pieces.
The shocking destruction of the historic headstones was apparently authorized by a group set up to protect the church grounds. The stones had stood along railings in a park at St Aflege church.
This wanton destruction was a terrible tragedy. The remains are only a few stumps, like broken teeth and the ghost impressions left behind on the brick wall. The destroyed the headstones that were used to prevent vandalism and damage from overgrown weeds.
The London Probation Trust confirmed a Community Payback team had been clearing the church ground.
This will distress a great number of people. What do you think is to be done?
