Damage caused at the Moorbrook Inn

One of Preston’s oldest drinking holes was vandalised on Wednesday night.

The Moorbrook Inn on North Road re-opened in May following a refurbishment.

The Parlour window of the pub was put through by what owners are branding a “drunken idiot”.

Management didn’t pull any punches, tweeting a picture of the damage and branding those responsible a “d*ckhead”.

Part-owned by Jeremy Rowlands, who is behind the Continental and the Ferret, was part of the team who invested in restoring the pub which has many period features.

It is not known how much the window will cost to replace, but it is thought to be around 150 years old.

Preston Police are understood to have arrested one man on suspicion of criminal damage.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101.
