Vandalism strikes NYMR

Vandals have caused thousands of pounds of damage to heritage railway carriages used in the filming of TV drama Downton Abbey.

Eight teak carriages on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway in Pickering had windows smashed overnight, with furniture and fixings also ruined.

The carriages, dating from 1930 to 1950, have regularly been featured in films and television, the railway said.

North Yorkshire Police is investigating the attack.

Fire extinguishers were also set off throughout the carriages, soaking the furniture and wall fittings.
