Vandals deface Uffington White Horse

Some yobs have vandalized the Uffington White Horse by spraying it with purple spray paint.

Officers from Thames Valley Police were called to the 3,000-year-old chalk monument at about 2200 BST on Thursday.

They found the head and eye of the horse had been sprayed with purple paint. A banner that read “fathers 4 justice stop the secret family courts” was recovered from the scene.

Sgt Steve Clark said: “The monument has been pretty much restored now and is back to how it should look.
