It is all over my facebook feed.......... Police probe after Skye dinosaur footprints are damaged - BBC News
It seems the Police on Skye are looking for a motor caravans after damage on Staff in beach 165 million year footprints were damaged
Lochaber and Skye police said: "Unfortunately we can confirm we are investigating reported damage to the dinosaur footprints at Staffin yesterday. Were you in the area?
Not me but here's the latest from Portree police!
Inspector Lynda Allan said: We would like to speak to a man believed to be aged in his late 40s to early 50s, of stocky build and approximately 61 62. It is believed he travelled in a white Hymer campervan.
Pouring plaster into a print is the standard way of getting information from archaeological sites and also scenes of crime. Does not DAMAGE anything especially if they are that old, and covered by the sea every 6 hours. Sounds a bit UUHHMMM! teacher, to me. He must have gone to get it and had all the correct stuff with him, probably a paleontologist from some university or other.
PS I have a white Hymer.

Sounds a bit daft pupil to me, expecting anything to set on a tidal platform in Skye at this time of year.
The dinosaur claims are being disputed, some of these Staffin folk had really big feet.
