Mosque attack yobs caught in the act on CCTV

Vandals carried out two attacks in one night on a mosque.

They were captured on camera as they removed fencing and threw bricks through the windows.

The vandalism is the latest in a spate of racially-motivated attacks on the premises in Liverpool Road, Eccles. CCTV cameras were installed after a break-in 2006 when intruders caused extensive damage.

Ali Anees, chairman of the Eccles and Salford Mosque, said: “We have had problems regularly. In March, someone threw paint over the outside of the mosque and wrote graffiti.

“Then at about 2am last Saturday two men got into the grounds. One is on film throwing bricks which had been taken from a wall of a neighbouring building. They attacked the building twice in about 20 minutes.
