Heritage Vandalism not just in Syria

It is not just in warm countries that delinquents with destructive tendencies take it out on the heritage, in Britain this week, a teenager was sentenced for starting a fire which gutted Fleet All Saints Church in Hampshire. His name is Daniel Finnerty. Many medieval churches have had the lead sheeting which covers their roofs stripped off to be sold by heritage vandals, this allows water to penetrate and weaken the structure of the building, causing collateral damage which can cost millions to fix - on top of re-roofing the building. Cultural barbarism is not the exclusive preserve of the stereotypical 'Muslims' of the xenophobic demonisations of the ant-immigration brayers.
