**Unfortunately the middle section of Kirkby Lane Cemetery has been disturbed by 'wildlife'. At the moment, there is no decisive answer as to what has caused this. It has been suggested that chafer grub, badgers or deer are to blame. Woodhall Spa Parish Council are sorry for any distress caused and wish to reassure parishioners that this issue will be resolved**
