Sergeant Chris Craven said: "It is appalling that someone would target a place of worship in this way.

"This happened near close to two busy roads (the church is on Branch Road and very close to the A6110 ring road) and I would appeal to anyone living in the area who saw anything suspicious to get in contact.

"Likewise if anyone is offered any of the items mentioned in a deal that sounds 'too good to be true' then call police."

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting crime reference 13170105366.
