Teens Destroy 320,000,000 Years Of History In A Few Seconds, And It Will Make You Boil With Anger

Published 1 year ago

The Brimham Rocks, located in North Yorkshire, England, are a natural formation of rocks, that have been formed by the elements for about 320 million years. Or should we say ‘were’?

Earlier this month, a group of vandals damaged the ancient formation in mere seconds – “at around 8.45pm on Friday, 1 June a group of five young people were seen pushing a rock at the top of one of the crags,” said North Yorkshire Police. The teens pushed the rock down the crag and damaged it, causing irreplaceable damage and creating a potentially dangerous condition. “It is just completely pointless and needless,” said Helen Clarke of the National Trust.

The police are asking for help identifying the potential criminals: “If you have any information about the identity of those responsible please contact officers on 101, choosing option 2 and quote reference 12180097959. Alternatively, email [email protected].”

See the damage for yourself in the gallery below and don’t forget to contact the authorities if you know something about this incident!

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
