Welsh Police Seek Suspects in Firebombing of Nativity Scene on Christmas Eve

Police in Wales have made a fresh appeal for information after a nativity scene in Raglan, Monmouthshire, was firebombed on Christmas Eve.

Gwent Police said the damage was caused around 9.45 pm on 24 December, as indicated by the timestamp on the security-camera footage they released.

The £10,000 nativity scene was funded by the Beaufort Hotel and designed by retired theatre design lecturer Liz Friendship, the BBC reported.

Statues of a shepherd, Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus were destroyed, leaving “just three kings staring at the bus stop,” Friendship told local media.

Monmouthshire Inspector Nikki Hughes said: “This was reckless behaviour that we are continuing to investigate. We’re particularly interested in speaking to two people who were seen in the area at the time who were wearing dark coloured clothing and hats. If you have any information, please get in touch.” Credit: Gwent Police via Storyful
