Anti-Semitic vandals have repeatedly targetted the Urmston Jewish Cemetery in Manchester over the past few weeks.

The latest incident took place in the early hours of Tuesday morning when 30 headstones were smashed resulting in thousands of pounds worth of damage.

Two similar attacks took place on May 7 and May 14, in which 22 headstones were toppled each time, the Jewish Chronicle reported.

Police are investigating the incidents as hate crimes, according to the report, and are viewing security camera footage. Police patrols in the area have been increased, the London-based Jewish News reported.

Labour Councillor, Joanne Harding, posted an image on Twitter with an update on the situation.

“Just been to inspect Urmston Jewish Cemetery with care taker,” she wrote.

“Imagine going to see your relatives graves and find it trashed and disrespected. Thousands of pounds worth of damage.”

Greater Manchester Police told the JC that the cases “are being treated as hate incidents”.

“No arrests have been made. Officers are investigating CCTV footage to identify offenders and patrols in the area have been increased,” a spokesperson said.
