Vandals attack Barnoldswick church for fourth time


A Barnoldswick church has been the target of vandals for the fourth time in a 12-month period.

A pane of glass was smashed at Holy Trinity Church in Skipton Road, Barnoldswick, on Saturday night and will cost an estimated £150 to repair.

To make matters worse, due to the wet weather and prevailing wind on Sunday, water was pouring through the window throughout the night and morning, soaking plastering and wood within the church entrance.

Church wardens were left to clear up the broken glass and mop up the excess water ahead of a baptism on Sunday.
