UK: Jewish cemetery vandalized

VANDALS targeted nine Jewish headstones in a secluded part of the Hereford cemetery – leaving families to foot the bill, which could rise to hundreds of pounds each, for repairs.

The vandalised headstones were all located in the hedged section for Jewish graves, and local Rabbi Anna Gerrard described as the attack as “very upsetting for the community”.

A police investigation was closed this week, identifying no suspects, and Herefordshire Council indicated that no increased security measures will be put in place to deter the criminals from coming back.
