Boys 'sorry' for church damage
TWO children have admitted causing damage at a church in Iron Acton.
The two boys, aged under 12, started small fires and knocked finials off woodwork at St James the Lesser Church on August 11.
The boys and their families have agreed to write a letter of apology, pay for the damage and carry out work tidying and cleaning in the church.
PC Finbar Simmons, who investigated the damage, said: "The families of these boys were very shocked by what had happened and were very supportive. They made every effort to help us get to the bottom of the matter. These boys didn't go into the church intent on causing damage, but they acted without any thought for the consequences. They have now admitted what they have done, apologised and are willing to make amends to the best of their ability."
