Rollright Stones vandalized

The Rollright Stones, located on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border and featured here on focalplane.com have been vandalized in a possible April Fools Day prank gone horribly wrong. Yellow gloss paint has been daubed on 70 stones (that's about all of them), desecrating a religious site and probably killing off lichens that are hundreds of years old. Restoration could cost up to £100,000.
