Wales: A stone circle built by neopagan students as a temple has been destroyed in what police believe to be a religiously-motivated hate crime. The circle has regularly been vandalised, but this time it is not the work of casual hooligans.
The steps giving access to the site, in the grounds of the town's Trinity Saint David University campus, were also torn apart.
Police believe that weapons, such as crow bars and pick axes, may have been used to deliberately cause as much damage to the area as possible.
Lampeter Pc Richard Marshall told town councillors at a meeting last week that the site had beenmaliciously taken apartand is now unsafe to use.
He also noted that the attack would have received considerably more coverage had it been a church.
While the Telegraph noted the presence of a strong Theology department at Lampeter, the town is only about 25 miles/40km from Christian extremist Steve "Birdshit" Green's stamping ground of Carmarthen. The estimated fuel costs for the journey say it all, really.
