Gloucester Cathedral has been vandalized

Vandals have caused considerable damage to a cathedral which featured in the Harry Potter Films. The culprits smashed 26 Victorian stained glass windows in a cathedral used as a setting for Hogwarts School. Three youths were seen running away from the 900-year-old Gloucester cathedral at about the time the damage was discovered on Tuesday. Security at the cathedral is to be reviewed after the attack, which caused damage estimated at £43,000.

A spokesperson for the cathedral, Reverend Nick Berry, said that the damage was “very expensive to repair and restore.” “They are small and quite strong windows – they were in very good condition,” he said…”It is quite a complicated job and will take some time (to repair.)”
