Devastating photos show extensive damage to an Ohel – a traditional Jewish grave – after it was smashed open at a cemetery in North Manchester.
Other parts of the cemetery were trashed or destroyed after vandals wreaked havoc at Philips Park Jewish cemetery in Whitefield on Sunday.
The despicable acts were blasted by officers from GMP who described the perpetrators as ‘scumbags.’
A tweet by GMP Prestwich said: “I hope the scumbags who desecrated a graveyard in Whitefield are proud!
“You are a complete disgrace to humanity!
“This is not what the community of Whitefield are about or accept.
North-west Rabbi, Shmuli Brown condemned the attack, calling the vandals ‘cowards.’
