A row about graveside memorials rumbled on as protestors staged a demonstration outside a church.

Families were outraged after items were removed from gravestones at Thornhill Parish Church, under the orders of the Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales.

People gathered at the church last Thursday to put back precious mementoes that had been stuffed into plastic bags by church wardens. A small silent protest was also held on Sunday to protest against the move. Bishop of Pontefract Tony Robison attended to speak to families.
