RESIDENTS are upset after Dyserth cemetery was vandalised last weekend.

Flowers and items at St Bridget’s churchyard were removed from graves and vases were broken at some point between Sunday night and Tuesday morning.

Reverend Canon Robert Rowland, Vicar at St Bridget’s Church said: “Nothing like this has ever happened here before and the damage was confined to a small area of the Churchyard which isn’t overlooked by any neighbouring properties.

“I feel really sorry for the families of those who are buried there and I am liaising with our local Community Support Officer to make the police aware of the damage too.”

On the Dyserth Times community Facebook page one resident commented: “Such a shock. Some people are going to be very upset. I tried to tidy it up a little but its hard to know what items came from what grave.

“I know kids have always gone into churchyards to "get scared" or mess about but to actually remove stuff and vandalise it? Terrible.”

Reverend Rowland is now liasing with the PCSO for more information and the possibility of increasing patrols in the area.
