"Builder Charged Over £4m New Homes Digger Destruction"

Posted on the 13 August 2018 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

From the BBC:
A builder has been accused of causing £4m of damage by ripping apart five new homes with a digger... Daniel Neagu, 30, from Athelstone Road in Harrow, north-west London, has been charged with causing criminal damage.
I call bullshit.
I'm happy to accept that those five homes could have been sold for £800,000 each, but not in a million years is the (re)build cost £800,000 each, probably more like £200,000 each, tops. The rest is land value and profit margin. So by all means do him for £1 million's worth of criminal damage, but not £4 million.
