Two 18-year-old men are due to appear in court.

Two teenage boys have been arrested in connection with a report of criminal damage at the Great Central Railway Heritage Centre in Ruddington.

A group of about six boys were disturbed by a volunteer and fled the scene on bikes towards Rushcliffe Country Park after they created “extensive” damage in three train carriages.

The incident occurred at around 6.45pm on Monday (29 April 2019) and last night two boys, aged 12 and 14, were arrested on suspicion of criminal damage.

The teenagers have been released on conditional bail as the police investigation continues.

Inspector for the Rushcliffe borough Craig Berry said he was thankful for the public support around the investigation which resulted in the two arrests by Nottinghamshire Police.

“Although the investigation is still in its early stages this is significant step forward and we will continue to follow up enquiries to identify all those involved.

He added: “It is important that anybody with any information still reports this to the police on 101, quoting incident number 765 of 29 April 2019.”
