The rector of Newmarket’s St Mary’s Church is appealing for information after the church wall was badly damaged some time on Saturday night.

Father John Hardy said: “ We think the piece of wall was hit by a heavy vehicle, sometime between 8pm and 7am on Sunday. I saw the damage when I went down to early service.”

The damaged wall is next to Church Lane which leads off Rowley Drive into the Turner Hall car park.

“The police have been informed. But no-one has claimed responsibility, and no witnesses have so far come forward. If anyone knows anything about the incident, I would be grateful to hear from them,” said Mr Hardy, who can be contacted on 01638 660729 or email jhardy153@btinternet.com
