The Burn­ley News re­ported that seven youths were sum­moned at Clotheroe County Po­lice Court for “caus­ing wil­ful dam­age to plants grow­ing in a gar­den owned at Down­ham by Wal­ter Briggs”. They had re­leased 50 sheep into the gar­den on 4 Novem­ber, caus­ing £3 worth of dam­age, in what the pa­per called “a piece of dev­il­ment per­pe­trated be­cause it was ‘mis­chief night’”. The boys pleaded guilty, and paid dam­ages and 5s each.
