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

Published 7 months 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!
