Published on June 30th, 2009 | by Admin


Vandals have damaged the wall of a Cornish castle which dates back to the 11th Century AD.

The offenders struck in the early hours of Sunday and pulled a number of large stones from the wall of the Great Hall at Launceston Castle.

English Heritage, which maintains and runs the castle on behalf of the Duchy of Cornwall, said the stones were smashed and impossible to repair.
