NEAALM111231A2 Vandalised: Gravestones in Eastwood Cemetery have been kicked over.

HEARTLESS yobs have been branded ‘mindless morons’ after kicking over and smashing gravestones at Eastwood Cemetery.

One Eastwood resident, who did not want to be named, slammed the vandals for their actions and revealed as a result he may not bury his mum, who recently passed away, in the family plot.

He said he went to visit the family grave at Christmas and stones on neighbouring plots had been kicked over on to his.

“The stone had just been kicked right over and ended up on my family plot where my father and brother are. It’s diabolical,” he said.

“My mother’s ashes are at the funeral directors waiting to be put there and I have to ask myself is it the right place to put them?” he added.
