A large number of reported thefts have taken place at Caister Old Cemetery in the past few weeks.

Flower vases and marble have been stolen from graves.

Councillor Penny Carpenter was contacted by two members of the public who had noticed the theft on the graves. She said: “It’s completely unnecessary and I apologise for any distress this damage and theft has caused to the families.

“I cannot see why anyone would want to do such a thing.”

If you’ve been affected by the thefts or have more information, contact the police on 101.
