Three youths will be questioned by police .. after 45 marked graves dating back to the late 1800s were smashed beyond repair at a cemetery on the New South Wales south coast.

The headstones were destroyed some time on Wednesday in the Wesleyan Presbyterian section of Wollongong Cemetery.

The Wollongong City Council says while it doesn't usually repair headstones .. it's asked for a quote .. and has lodged a development application to build a fence .. to help protect it from further attacks.
