All three churches in Beckett Road have been smashed into by vehicles in recent months.

It comes after St Mary’s Church in Beckett Road suffered damage to its fence in January after a collision involving two vehicles and a cyclist.

Pictures showed a van embedded in railings outside the church after damaging a telecommunications box.

And last September, a car crashed into St Andrew’s Methodist Church, also in Beckett Road, damaging fencing and a wall at its junction with Morley Road.
