Thousands of pounds worth of model railway exhibits have been destroyed in an act of "total wanton destruction".

Market Deeping Model Railway Club lost years of work in the raid at Welland Academy in Stamford on Saturday.

Its chairman Peter Davies, 70, said exhibits were smashed, thrown around and stamped on, including a locomotive unit worth about £8,500.

Four youths have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and criminal damage.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Nothing new, there were a few vandalizations of this scale in my hometown back in the 80/90s by kids.

Agreed. In fact, there was stuff like that going on in the UK back in the 60's and 70's as well.

We weren't like that, wanton destruction.

There is a difference between young kids being stupid and wild, and kids taking joy in destroying something they know was very special to somebody. Throw the book at them

I read a story a while back of two teenage girls who tazed an 18 month old girl to the point of unconsciousness, over and over, livestreamed it while laughing about it, got arrested because of that, and were still laughing about it after the arrest and still thought they'd done nothing wrong.

Yes kids have changed...

Yes, but the current generation has a higher precentage of that type. More kids of my generation had work to do at home that kept them busy and taught them responsibility. Practically all kids of my father's generation where too busy to cause much trouble. Today's kids have nothing to do but look for trouble.


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

If anything you'd think the youths were too busy being distracted by social media and technology to be going out and causing trouble. Like I said, the problem isn't any more worse. You just hear about it more because 24hr news - and your perception has changed.

Our youth did not have the means by which every idiotic act a select few committed became worldwide news.

As someone who's always quick to say, "Back in my day... : old_simmer ," I'm sure there's always been rotten kids who would do this kind of crap and worse (although I didn't catch their ages).

What I want to know is, where's the live footage? No on-site security cameras? Usually stupid kids will video tape their carnage while it's happening, any of this surface yet? One thing I love about this modern world is that it's so often 'caught on tape'.
