Overnight on Sunday 25th May, a number of stained glass windows of St Michael and All Angels Church on Bath Road were damaged.

The stained glass windows, which date back around 100 years, were damaged by someone throwing something at the windows with some force.

Sadly the windows are thought to be beyond repair and will cost thousands of pounds to replace them although the parish is still looking into the possibility of restoration.

Father Kevin Morris, vicar of St Michael & All Angels, said, "We were deeply saddened at the malicious damage done to our stained glass windows which have been part of our church for nearly a hundred years and also for the perpetrators of the crime. It is hard to understand why they did it."
