Sickening footage shows teenage girls desecrating a baby’s grave by throwing a Thomas the Tank Engine toy at the headstone whilst laughing.  

The disgusting vandalism spree took place in Leigh, Greater Manchester where two clips were recorded at the time of the incident and shared widely on social media.

One short clip showed the moment a girl took items from the grave of a young child and threw it at the headstones, whilst in fits of hysterics. 

The second video shows a girl taking flowers from another grave and pouring them from their container onto a path in Leigh Cemetery.

A spokesperson for Wigan Council said officers had visited the cemetery since the video was taken.

They confirmed there was ‘no physical damage’ to the headstone.

Shocked viewers have taken to social media to voice their displeasure of the act which has been branded as ‘disgusting and vile’.

One person wrote: ‘It’s absolutely vile! Any decent parent would be disgusted!’

Another wrote: ‘Disgusting! They should be ashamed of themselves! Why are they even hanging around the cemetery anyway!’

One more added: ‘To lose a child is to lose all your tomorrows… they just don’t get it and that’s no excuse. Heartbreaking for the parents of that little one.’ 

Another called for an intervention from the culprits’ parents, saying: ‘Hopefully the parents actually do something about it, public apology to the family members and cleaning all the graves up for a start, horrible silly little girls.’
