In a strange bit of news a pack of young vandals wrecked a Women's Institute tea party as they flooded a village hall with water and trashed members' cars.
The perpetrators of this evil deed acquired entrance to the cream tea and tabletop sale by telling the lady on the door they wanted to use the toilet - but once inside the true purpose of their visit was made clear.
They blocked drains, squirted soap and left taps running. They also scratched cars and slashed tyres before being chased away by the caretaker in Illogan, Cornwall.
One woman was in tears after finding "b@#*h" scratched on her bonnet. President Ruth Palin said: "It was upsetting."
