A nativity scene in Ilford has been “destroyed by idiots”. The British Pakistani Christian Association (BCPA) paid for and installed the statues to remind people in the High Road of the real meaning of Christmas.
Yet, in an attack on Christianity, the Virgin Mary and Joseph have been smashed and the infant Jesus was decapitated.

A local non-religious resident told the Ilford Recorder the incident was “religious desecration”. She said: “It is three days before Christmas and this happens”.
Further saying, “Any other religion and there would be an outcry and it would have been fixed already.
“It is a desecration of a religious icon – I am disgusted.” She explained that she had reported it to Redbridge Town Hall but as it was not their nativity, and they were on their way to lunch, they couldn’t do anything about it.
