City council rejects mum's plea for CCTV at vandal-hit Derby cemetery
A mum whose son's grave was vandalised in a Derby cemetery has called for CCTV in the area after another baby's grave was hit.
But Derby City Council says it feels people should have a "certain amount of privacy" when they visit graves.
The authority has also said that the number of incidents of vandalism "reported to the cemetery office" at Nottingham Road cemetery is small.
But there have been a number of incidents where damage was done at the children's cemetery and elsewhere on the site in recent years.
