Thousands of pounds worth of damage has been caused to a heritage train used in historical dramas including Downton Abbey and Dad's Army.

Seven vintage carriages, belonging to North Yorkshire Moors Railway, were badly damaged in the attack at the weekend.

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

The charity which runs the heritage railway said it was unable to estimate the cost of repairing the set of eight carriages but said it would "run into thousands".

Chris Price, general manager at the railway, told the BBC: "We were absolutely devastated to discover that the carriages had been damaged overnight, obviously all the staff and volunteers are extremely upset".

North Yorkshire Police said the offenders smashed windows to gain access to the train compartments and then trashed the carriages between 10pm on Saturday (July 22) and 7am on Sunday (July 23).
