A TEENAGER has been reprimanded by police following the heartless trashing of a Lowestoft school's eco haven.

In September thugs wrecked more than seven months of hard work by enthusiastic youngsters at Foxborough Middle School.

Pupils and teachers at the school in Foxborough Road were left saddened as equipment, plants, fruit, flowers and vegetables that had been carefully cultivated and tended were destroyed as vandals struck on September 20.

The garden in the grounds of the school was targeted and stones were also thrown, with several windows broken.

Further enquiries were made by police to determine who had caused the damage with several youths being interviewed by officers.

'During these interviews a boy, who was 15 at the time of the incident, admitted causing the damage,' the spokesman added. 'He was subsequently reprimanded by police.'
