Holy Trinity Church in Coates was closed on Easter Sunday and Monday after one of the panes from a led light was broken and bits of wood were chucked in the vestibule.

Church warden Elizabeth Olleneittle says the church has re-opened.

She said: “It’s not very nice but I think it’s one of those things all churches have to deal with now and again. Everything’s all right.”
