PARTY YOBS' PS20K WRECKING SPREE; Terror at teen sleepover.


SCORES of drug-crazed yobs trashed a house after gatecrashing a teenage girl's sleepover intended for two pals. Damage is so bad the family will be homeless at Christmas.

Amey Holmes-Evans, 16, invited a pair of girl friends to watch a film and eat pizza. But 60 youths descended on the three-bed home when word of the get-together spread around their college. They urinated on beds, smashed holes in ceilings and ripped doors off their hinges, causing PS20,000 damage.

They even pulled down a Christmas tree, ripped up cards and smashed baubles.

Neighbours called police when they saw revellers aged 16 to 18 hurling furniture into the quiet cul-de-sac.

Officers found a haze of cannabis smoke, bottles strewn across the floor and evidence of ketamine.

Food was smeared over carpets and walls, a drum kit had been destroyed and a pictures were ripped down.

The yobs went from room to room, pulling belongings from drawers and - bizarrely - taping knives and forks to the ceiling. They even went through the family's entire CD collection, snapping each one in half. Single mum Sam Mabbott, 39, was on a night out when Amey phoned shortly before midnight to say things were out of control. She collected her from the police station, where she protec-had been taken for her own protection, before returning home to the devastation in Hook, Hants.

Counselling administrator Sam, who also has a son of 11, rents the house from her parents. The damage is so bad the family have moved out and are unlikely to return for two months.

Their cat is in a cattery suffering from trauma.

Sam said she left her daughter alone from 4.30pm to go on a night out in London. She added: "Amey had asked if she could have a party for a friend's birthday and I said 'Never in a million years'. I said, 'Never in a million years'. I told her she could have two female friends for a sleepover. I thought at 16 she could be trusted.

"Unknown to me, she invited 18 people and word spread. Nothing could ever prepare me for the horrific scene I saw when I returned home.

"I was shaking and left feeling sick and panicky. It's fair to say things between me and Amey are strained at the moment.

"I'm not sure that I'll ever be able to trust her again."

Police said: "Investigations are ongoing."
