A BISHOP has admitted that a mistake made by the Wakefield Diocese could have cost the city some of its most precious artefacts.

Holy carvings called misericords were reported missing from the derelict St Peter’s Church in Stanley in March.

They are the only set of their kind in the world and are believed to be worth at least £2,000 each.
