Statement from Bishop of Leicester following graffiti on a Melton church

The Bishop of Leicester, Rt Revd Martyn Snow, has condemned Nazi symbol graffiti found at St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray: “The Church of England stands against all forms of antisemitism. In this week when we mark Holocaust Memorial Day we are mindful of the suffering of Jewish people and want to reiterate our support for Jewish friends and colleagues. We condemn this act of vandalism and will cooperate with the authorities as they respond to it. We offer our support to colleagues in the churches and wider community in Melton as we stand united against hatred and prejudice in all their forms.”
