Estate devastated by vandalism

A historic estate that was targeted by vandals says the damage caused to the site is devastating.

The gardens at the Milntown Estate in Ramsey were damaged earlier this week, with a stone bench, rescue boat, oars and hosepipes thrown in the lake, as well as damage to lights and fences.

The estate is run by a charitable trust, which says its devastated to be using its funds to fix the situation.

Milntown has also revealed that those responsible have been coming onto the property while staff are breaking for lunch to mess around with their tools and digger.

A number of sites in Ramsey have been vandalised over the last week, including Ramsey Rugby Club and Ramsey Golf Club, with police suspecting one group is responsible.

Anyone with information that could help police identify those responsible is asked to contact Ramsey Police Station on 812234.
