Morning all. Quite icy this morning and some drivers were taken by surprise it seems. There was a road closed on our normal route in, due to an accident. That meant a long detour and bad traffic so OH was late for work, but he phoned in as soon as we saw there was a problem.
The 'party' culprits will be getting a bill for the damage, and the headmaster of the school will be informed - most of the kids involved were from the school in the village. They will also be asked to clear up the mess outside - we would have done it but didn't have a ladder. The police have been informed but they didn't attend as at the time we spoke to them we didn't know if they had had permission to be there - turns out they didn't have, and had taken the key without the mum's knowledge. But they asked us to keep hold of a few objects with hard surfaces that they could fingerprint if we wanted them charged with trespass and criminal damage. Not sure we will go down this route, but it does seem that kids these days have no accountability.
Its dry here at the moment and I'm hoping it stays dry at least until lunchtime - a visit to the plot is long overdue!
