A woman claims her father's grave along with a number of others in a Hounslow graveyard have been subjected to vandalism.
Miss Khan, who asked for her full name not to be used and who regularly visits her late father's final resting place in Borough Cemetery on Powder Mill Lane, Whitton, said the fence surrounding the grave had been broken, flowers ripped out and in some places name plaques removed and thrown.
She had been left very upset by the incident.
However Hounslow Council has denied any claims of vandalism at the graveyard, citing changing weather conditions and local wildlife interference as the cause.
Miss Khan, of Hounslow, told getwestlondon at least seven or eight other graves had been damaged.
During a visit on Monday July 24 she claims there was no damage to any graves but when she went on Saturday July 29 the situation was quite different.
She added: "The fence surrounding my dad's grave had been broken and also little windmills I've placed there had been broken, flowers I bought a few days ago had been ripped off and the stem was left.
"I was curious so started looking at other graves and noticed so many other graves had been vandalised, similar to the way my dad's had been.
"A few graves had pebbles and those where ripped off and the mud on the graves had been thrown out.
"Another thing I saw was name plaques had been ripped out of the graves and thrown just anywhere."
Councillor Samia Chaudhary, cabinet member for green policy, leisure [parks/cemeteries], at Hounslow Council, said: “Carillion who manage the borough’s cemeteries on behalf of Hounslow Council, has visited the site and found no evidence of vandalism.
“Natural deterioration and disturbance take place from time to time due to changing weather conditions and interference from local wildlife.”
