Jewish cemetery anti-Semitic graffiti: Teenager charged

A teenager has been charged after gravestones were daubed with anti-Semitic graffiti and swastikas at a north Manchester cemetery.

About 40 headstones were also toppled at the Jewish Cemetery in Rochdale Road, Blackley, in June, police said.

Officers said a 13-year-old boy, who cannot be named because of his age, has been charged with criminal damage.

He will appear before Manchester and Salford Youth Court on 8 August. A second 13-year-old boy remains on bail.
