Security stepped up at Barnoldswick church after vandalism

| May 20, 2014

A CHURCH is set to install security cameras and lighting after a spate of attacks by vandals.

Windows at Holy Trinity Church, in Gisburn Road, Barnoldswick, were smashed during the latest attack – the fifth in 18 months.

Church warden Mark Williams said it looked like the windows had been smashed by youths playing football on the church grounds, but it comes just weeks after vandals deliberately broke windows with a stick.

The ‘mindless vandalism’ has led to the church having to fork out around £150 per broken window.

Mr Williams said: “We get a lot of incidents with youngsters hanging out in the gardens at the back and this time it looks like the windows have been smashed by footballs.
