Surprisingly not the main headline on the Daily Mail today. It's left to Mirror to report on this national tragedy.

The damage in Fenton Park

Fucking hell. What was the motivation behind that?

xDiggy - 08 Apr 2021 15:32:00 (#4 of 30)

Being cretinous.

These are the kind of kids who throw stones at ambulances.

What else do you know about these perpetrators, Diggy?

rejonked - 08 Apr 2021 15:38:14 (#7 of 30)

Diggy's nephews up to no good again.

don't know about the plaque, but the flowers look like the work of jackdaws

fogsake - 08 Apr 2021 15:44:37 (#10 of 30)

Young ones, probably.

CaptainBlack - 08 Apr 2021 15:44:57 (#11 of 30)

All ammo for the Woke Wars.

Is the plaque damaged? I can't see anything wrong with it, but perhaps I'm missing something.

ChankNolen - 08 Apr 2021 16:33:38 (#13 of 30)

Same question here.

HerrWalrus - 08 Apr 2021 16:35:16 (#14 of 30)

Time it seems for a new wave of moral panics.

fogsake - 08 Apr 2021 16:35:44 (#15 of 30)

Foreign jackdaws.

LazyDazy - 08 Apr 2021 16:43:00 (#16 of 30)

I enjoy feeling morally outraged as much as anyone, so I'm disappointed to have to say I think that this has been done by delinquent wildlife, not humans.

Do the facts matter?

Captain Sir Tom captured the hearts of the nation during the first lockdown by walking laps of his garden

He didn't go round, he went up and down. Lengths not laps.

darkhorse - 08 Apr 2021 17:17:40 (#19 of 30)

Like in a swimming pool. Or do you swim laps around the full perimeter?

solomongursky - 08 Apr 2021 17:24:06 (#20 of 30)

Nobody laps a swimming pool you freak.
