THIEVES have broken into an historic York church, the fourth raid on the building this year.
Holy Trinity Church, in Goodramgate, dates back to the 15th Century. It was first targeted by thieves in January.
They damaged the property and made off with some money which, unusually for the church, had not been deposited at the bank that day.
Graham White, who is volunteer co-ordinator for Yorkshire and the North East from the Churches Conservation Trust, said the damage caused in the latest attack would probably cost more than £500 to repair.
