What happens in these situations. Does the man (if guilty) pay to fix it. Like how is the offended party made good?

I ask assuming the guy doesn’t have hundreds of thousands to correct the wrong. And spurs use insurance to cover.

Insurance should cover the costs in the first instance, and then recovery by the insurance company from the guy (depending on whether he has any money).......it's easy to assume he hasn't got any capital, but even if he has a small flat in London then it's surprising how much that is worth........but if he has no money then it's pointless to pursue.

The insurance isn't the point. The fact the stadium was vandilised should not be overlooked and should not be forgotten or be joked about.

Whoever did it is pathetic and I hope they get the book thrown at them whatever their reason is.

Vandalism is a criminal offence punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

That would assume there is space in prison for someone. This current clueless government is currently doing everything it can to avoid sending people to prison either because they have not built any or it is one of their mates!

Well, taking a breath for a moment, no one knows the context, including, say, the mental health of whoever did it. Rage is understandable and easy, but there is perhaps a much wider and more complex picture.

I can’t fathom how much damage could be in the 100s of 1000s. I wonder if this includes stock in the shop for example.

I think you'll find that the current government are on the largest programme of prison building since Victorian times - a bigger question is whether sending people to prison is effective?

It makes me wonder if he's done something to the pitch or possibly those huge plate glass windows?

We ain't got no space in Prison mate. Especially for 'vandals'.
We're talking about hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of damage and not someone just spray painting a wall so I'd be surprised if they get away without a custodial sentence.

It is strange that there doesn't appear to have been any leak of what actually happened. As others have commented that is a lot of damage.

any idea what actually happened?

I am just wondering how bad the damage one person high on drugs can do.

I mean... unless it was "Oh no, he set fire to our unsold merchandise...."

"all those Winks and Lucas t-shirts are now ruined!" :ROFLMAO:
