"This building is the heart of our work, providing warmth and support for so many people from our local community.

"Now we will all be left in the cold.

"We hope that those responsible are found and brought to justice."

Halifax's MP Holly Lynch posted on social media: "This is a disgraceful act.

"The amazing team at St Augustine’s deserve so much better than this.
