Police have slammed "deplorable" partygoers who damaged a prehistoric hillfort site currently being studied by archaeologists. The structure was damaged, equipment set on fire and litter strewn around the site.

Bryn Gaer in Dinas Dinlle, Gwynedd, is a prehistoric settlement with evidence of Roman habitation and possibly referred to in the Mabinogi as the home of Lleu Llaw Gyffes and his wife Blodeuwedd, according to the North Wales Police Rural Crime Team. It is also on a site of special scientific interest and is a scheduled ancient monument currently the subject of an archaeological dig to discover more about its past.

The Rural Crime Team said: "It is therefore deplorable that very recently people decided to have a party at the location and in the process of doing so, set some of the equipment alight, damaged some of the structure and left an abundance of litter at the location. With sites such as these, there is no doubt that the phrase 'when it's gone, it's gone', rings true.
