Ancient sites and monuments damaged in Pembrokeshire

From the BBC News:

"Ancient sites and monuments in north Pembrokeshire have been blighted with graffiti, broken glass and an abandoned car, it has been claimed.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority says a car contaminated a Site of Special Scientific Interest below the Carn Ffoi Iron Age Fort.

It also says a megalithic stone at Bedd Arthur, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, has had names scratched into it.

Historic monuments agency Cadw said damage was often "irreversible".

The park authority's criticisms followed news that another ancient stone, Bedd Morris near Newport, was recently toppled after being hit by a vehicle."
