Very stupid criminal, version 'who knows how many?'

A burglar has been hauled before the courts after leaving police a helpful clue at the crime scene – his name scrawled on a wall. Peter Addison, 18, daubed "Peter Addison was here!" in black marker pen at a campsite for underprivileged children.

Sky News reports that he and friend had been on a drunken wrecking spree at the camp. They had smashed crockery, let off fire extinguishers and used dinner plates as cricket balls. When police arrested Addison, he was even wearing a T-shirt stolen from the site, the Crown Prosecution Service said. To make matters worse, Addison, of Heaton Mersey, Stockport, had also written his gang's name on the wall – "The Adlington Massiv!"

The teenager also vandalised a Garden Birds of Britain poster by adding "R Gay". He then left a final message to the campsite owners: "Thanks for the stay."
