Stonehenge Damaged With Chewing Gum and Graffiti During Winter Solstice
Dare I say it? Well why not? More white people behaving badly. If that seems a stretch, just try to imagine the berserk meltdown if this had been a mob of black teenagers at a US national monument.
Stonehenge was damaged during the Winter Solstice, with chewing gum stuck to the ancient monument, it has been diclosed.
A report The Heritage Journal also revealed graffiti was sprayed on the stones, people tried to light fires on them and someone dripped a line of oil on several of them in December.
Conservationists are calling for a ban to be put in place preventing people from walking among the stones on both the longest and shortest days of the year.
It comes as it emerged volunteers and staff at the site were “left in tears” following the last summer solstice as they were forced to clear up vomit and faeces.
Following a long battle, pagan leader King Arthur Pendragon won his fight for open access to the stones in 2000.
But staff at the iconic landmark say it should once again remain closed off during the annual events due to damage to the site.
