An ancient Fenland monument has been left seriously damaged

A grandfather has issued an urgent plea after a Fenland ancient monument has been seriously damaged by people using quad bikes, motorbikes or other off-road vehicles.

Malcolm Bruce, chairman of Leverington Street Pride, described the destruction wreaked on Roman Bank as 'devastating' and said it is going to take years for the natural site to recover - but only if the perpetrators stay away.

Mr Bruce, who regularly walks the site with his grandchildren, said: "There was evidence that people had been using quad bikes or motorbikes to ride up and down the monument about 10 days ago, but they returned on Tuesday (24) night and had churned up the grass leaving the area a muddy mess."
