The boundary wall of Codicote’s historic parish church has been badly damaged in an incident that police believe was caused by a vehicle.

The wall at St Giles Church in Bury Lane was damaged overnight between Wednesday and Thursday, August 30 and 31.

The church is a Grade II-listed building and was dedicated in the 12th century.

Det Con Kathryn Marshall said: “It is believed that the extensive damage to the wall was caused by a vehicle.

“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed what happened, or saw anything suspicious in the area, to please get in touch.”

Anyone with information should contact North Herts local crime unit via the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference G1/17/2657, or report information at contacthertspolice.uk/Report.
