Market Deeping Model Railway Club vandals sentencing: parents of three boys to pay £500 compensation
Three drunk schoolboys who admitted destroying a model railway exhibition will have their parents pay £500 compensation to the club whose exhibition was destroyed.
The youths, who were about to take their GCSEs, caused damage costing £30,000 and smashed up hand-built locomotives and displays including one which had taken 36 years to build and another built by a nine-year-old.
Market Deeping Model Railway Club members, who organised the exhibition, were left in tears.
