Vandals target Victorian tin church

A VICTORIAN tin church rescued and rebuilt by the Midland Railway at Butterley has been vandalised.

Six of the church’s windows were smashed on Monday night.

The church has been a big attraction since it was rebuilt and even won a national award for the work done to rescue it.

It has also been used in wedding blessings and funeral services.

Alan Calladine, Midland Railway Trust development officer, said: “We are very disappointed that this has happened.”

Security at the site will now be stepped up following the incident.
