Shocking pictures show the scale of destruction caused by yobs after they went on the rampage at a model railway exhibition.

Tens of thousands of pounds worth of exhibits were destroyed by the vandals after they broke into a secondary school in the early hours of Saturday.

The act of 'total wanton destruction' left 'grown men in tears' and led to the cancellation of the Market Deeping Model Railway Club's show in Stamford, Lincs.

Images taken by club members show how the thugs left the Stamford Welland Academy looking like a 'bomb site'.

our youths were arrested on suspicion of burglary and criminal damage and have since been released on conditional bail.

Club chairman Peter Davies, 70, said exhibits were smashed, thrown around and stamped on, including a locomotive unit worth about £8,500.

The grandfather-of-five, a retired teacher, said the display had taken hours to prepare and included exhibits which were the 'life's work' of some members.

It was expected the show would attract between 500 to 600 people from across the country and was due to begin on Saturday.

Peter, of Market Deeping, Lincs., who has been building model trains for 60 years, said: 'We are devastated and distraught.

'It's heartbreaking. There were grown men there in tears because of what had been done, and I admit I was one of them.

'Can you imagine your life's work wrecked? One guy spent 25 years on his work and it's wrecked, it's just horrendous. They left it like a bomb site.

'We had to abandon the whole thing because it was it was scene of total devastation.
