Head­stone van­dalised at ceme­tery

Stratford Press - - News -

An act of van­dal­ism at Kop­u­atama Ceme­tery in Strat­ford, has left one fam­ily dev­as­tated.

A fam­ily spokesper­son, who de­clined to be named say­ing the fam­ily was al­ready go­ing through enough heartache, says a head­stone was dam­aged be­tween 19 and 25 of Novem­ber this year.

Pic­tures show the head­stone has been bro­ken off at the base and the spokesper­son says the van­dal­ism has been re­ported to po­lice.

“We think peo­ple should know about this, so they can check on their own loved ones’ rest­ing place,” says the spokesper­son. They said they would not like any other fam­ily to ex­pe­ri­ence van­dal­ism like this.

The grave has been dam­aged in an act of van­dal­ism.
