A couple's £1.2million grade II listed home was ransacked by children who used chainsaws, hammers and axes to leave the property looking like 'a war zone', a court has heard.
The six-bedroom home in Shanklin, Isle of Wight, was targeted by 'mindless' youngsters who went on to damage a chandelier, antique furniture and the homeowner's wedding dress.
According to a report by The Times, a court heard chainsaws, axes and sledgehammers were pinched from the garage and used in 'every bedroom of the property' by the youths, leaving the house looking like a 'war zone'.
Couple Joanna and Matt Pittard were set to make the house their family home before it was completely ruined, it was heard.
The group of children - including two girls - allegedly left 'hardly anything untouched' by damaging bathroom taps, squirting bleach and paint and shattering 22 windows.
