Teens Destroy 320,000,000 Years Of History In A Few Seconds, And The Way It Looks Now Infuriates Everyone

Wind, rain, and ice have been sculpting the Brimham Rocks for the last 320 million years. It has even become a National Trust landmark and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, drawing visitors to admire the outdoors of North Yorkshire, England. Earlier this month, however, some vandals have damaged it in a few mindless 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,” North Yorkshire Police said. “This resulted in the rock falling from the crag causing damage to the crag face. The damage this has caused is irreplaceable and it is now in a potentially dangerous condition.”

“The incident has not only caused considerable damage to both the rock and the crag face, but those responsible also put themselves in danger and have created a potential hazard for other visitors to Brimham Rocks.”

Helen Clarke, from the National Trust, added: “It might have been fun for some people. Actually, it is just completely pointless and needless.”

While everyone is raging against the teens on social media, the police are asking for help. “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 bill.hickson@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.”
