Members of the church found one of the flower urns outside the southern entrance have been broken when they arrived on Sunday morning (August 5).

Churchwarden Professor Brian Golding, said: “I suspect drunken high spirits late at night.

“We found out Sunday morning, the one that was still in tact we managed to get back on its pedestal.
