Vandals wreck Muslim graves

Bereaved relatives have been left devastated after vandals targeted their loved ones’ graves. Police are treating the desecration – in a Muslim section of Cottingley Cemetery – as a racist incident. Families were distraught to find headstones kicked over, memorial plaques removed, rubbish strewn around and a bin even placed over one of the graves.
