Sick vandals have carried out string of attacks at a Wembley cemetery, desecrating graves with severed animal heads and smashing up the memorials of dead locals.
Six pig, goat and sheep heads have been found strewn across the grounds of St John the Evangelist Church, in Wembley High Road in the past year.
And seven cross-bearing gravestones have been destroyed in the past month.
According to Vicar Francis Adu-Boachie the shocking spate of attacks are being carried out by thugs with anti-Christian motivations.
"There has been a lot of devilish activity and I am very worried about it," he said.
"At first we thought it was just drunk vandals smashing up the memorials, but we then realised the ones with crosses on were being specifically targeted.
"This indicates the people who are doing this are against the Christian religion. People are really angry about it."
The graveyard is used as a popular shortcut by residents walking to Wembley town centre, but on a number of occasions walkers have been faced with grisly site of mutilated animal remains.
"We have had four heads left here this year and two at the end of last year," added Mr Adu-Boachie.
"They are being left closer and closer to the church entrance with other animal body parts such as feet. It seems like they are being used in a ritualistic fashion.
"Members of the public use the path through the cemetery a lot and are seeing this type of thing - when I was on holiday a head way laying there for two days."
The estranged vicar regulary complains to the authorities about gangs of youths drinking and having sex around the church yard.
He said: "It is a big open space and is being misused by certain people. A lot of drunks loiter around here, as well as students who drink and have sex behind the church."
Wembley resident Nikil Gola, 26, said he shocked by the attacks.
"It is like something out of a horror film," he said.
"You would never think anything like this would happen here."
Police and council officers have now ramped up patrols around St John's in a bid to stop the vandals striking again.
And Mr Adu-Boachie has met with the council's cemetery officers who have removed bushes and vegetation to make the area less secluded and shady.
