Market Deeping Railway Club: Drunk teenagers sentenced for "mindless, wanton destruction" of displays
A gang of drunk schoolboys destroyed a model railway exhibition after breaking-in to a school sports hall to play football in the middle of the night.
The youths caused £30,000 worth of damage and smashed up handbuilt locomotives and displays including one which had taken 36 years to build - leaving Market Deeping Model Railway Club organisers in tears.
Four youths aged 15 and 16 were arrested after rampaging through the sports hall at Stamford Welland Academy during the early hours of Saturday 18 May.
