England: Birkrigg stone circle near Ulverston has been vandalised for the second time in a year. This time, the neds responsible made a crude and unconvincing attempt to make it look like the work of environmentalist protestors.
One of the standing stones of a Bronze Age stone circle has been daubed with red paint.
Last November four of the 12 stones which form an inner circle on the common were covered in paint.
One bore the cryptic message, Stop the Gene War, in black paint.
Paint had also been spattered on the grass, where a fire had also been lit.
