Stonehenge Vandalized

Two vandals assaulted the Heel Stone at Stonehenge with a hammer and screwdriver, absconding with a coin-sized chip and leaving a large scratch in the structure.

Security spotted the men, who escaped over a fence and drove away. Police have been notified and are looking into the matter. The two men may have been the same that were spotted "acting suspiciously" previously.

This is the first such incident at the site in decades, according to officials. Stonehenge is one of the best-preserved ancient monuments. The damage was minimal.
