Gravestones at a rural Suffolk church have been vandalised with what is believed to be gold spray paint.
Five headstones at All Saints Church in Hitcham were vandalised at some point before October 14, when it was reported to police.
Reverend Tiffer Robinson is rector for the church; he said that the discovery had been made by someone who had a relative in the graveyard.
“We have contacted all the families of all the people who have the gravestones,” said Revd Robinson.
“We are trying to work out how to clean them.”

Revd Robinson said that although there had been some small issues for local churches in the area in the past, an incident like this was not like anything he had come across before.
“They are quite peaceful communities,” said Revd Robinson.
