Castle that survived 700 years of warfare loses battle to drunken teens

Flint Castle in Wales has survived many bloody battles, but now it is being closed to the public because of drunken British teens.

They claim their staff have been spat upon and threatened by youngsters from nearby housing estates, who smash bottles and treat the ancient ruins as a drinking den.

John Wallis, site operations manager for Cadw – the Welsh equivalent of English Heritage – who run the castle, said the behaviour of the youths was making it too dangerous to keep it open to the public. ‘We are extremely frustrated with the ongoing spate of vandalism,’ he said.

  1. I feel that if the Castle Staff were allowed to arm themselves with Bows, the issues could be resolved very suddenly, and without remorse.

  2. It sad that something as beautiful as this is being ruined by reckless teens who have no appreciation as to the history behind it.
