Yobs caught on camera at Folkestone vinery

After a spate of vandalism at the recently restored Grade II listed vinery on Folkestone's Madeira Walk at the Leas, one of the culprits has been arrested. The Leas and Lower Leas area is well covered by CCTV, and one yob has been caught after being spotted on top of the vinery.

The recent damage included breaking down a new vine, hacking at the wooden structure and destroying a bench to create a bonfire. In addition, empty booze bottles and vomit were strewn around. It will cost GBP2000 to make the necessary repairs, and local Environment Secretary Cllr Alan North is calling on magistrates to throw the book at him.

Whilst it is true that a yob (from Dover) was arrested, the facts are not quite those as reported in the media.

1. As usual the CCTV cameras covering the area were switched off at the time. Priority is given to the town centre, and outlying areas are all but ignored.

2. He was caught because he dropped his passport at the scene of the crime and when questioned, admitted all then gave names of others to whom the police should speak.
