However, less than two hours later Kate discovered the entire display had been smashed up.

This is what YEP readers had to say on the story:

Michael Duda: "This kind of thing happens all the time. Someone goes to all the effort to make a display for young children to enjoy, only to be destroyed by older kids."

Sy Shanks: "We had the same last night. I had my three-year-old daughter in tears all night."

Shelley Robinson: "Mindless vandalism caused by mindless halfwits."

Eve Tidswell: "The Funky Indian restaurant had all their children's competition pumpkins smashed by youths too."

Elizabeth Tattersall: "Disgusting. People pay out money to do things like this and what for? These selfish people damage their hard work."

Steven Grayson: "'Kids' knocking on doors without costumes and swearing if you don't answer.

Barbie J Eveson: "A lot of very selfish, destructive morons with nothing better to do."

Sandra Russell: "I hope they feel remorse but I guess they have no shame. Sad future."

Janet Hall: "Happened in Guiseley too. Teens, not dressed up, smashed a five-year-old's pumpkin in front of him and his mum. He was so upset!"

Jeanette Masefield: "Some teens did this to me a few years ago. Kicked the pumpkins all over and down cellar steps. I always decorated my house inside and out, this put a bad taste in my mouth and I haven't done it since."
