OOoo, I laughed up tea when I read this a while ago. I can imagine the panic this young one must have felt, feel the sheer weight of 'what have I done' she must have suffered. As frequent bouts with TLGK have proven, sometimes logic is not a teenager's strong point.
Of course that's nothing to what her parents must have felt, I can only imagine the guantlet of emotions they ran through. I wonder will that kid be getting any pocket money for the rest of her teenage years.
Observe, from today's SUN...
THE schoolgirl whose £1million home was trashed by partying teenagers sent desperate text-style messages for the mayhem to stop.
Frantic Camilla Davies, 14 — who lent pals a key while she was away with her parents — used her computer because she had forgotten her mobile phone.
One message to a chum on internet site MySpace begged for details of the rampage, pleading: “Tell me what the f*** has happened.”
At one point she threatened to call the police — fearing her stepdad’s £50,000 silver 730 BMW car and her mum’s gold Chrysler would also be wrecked.
As the full horror of the trail of damage at the seven-bedroom mansion dawned, she declared: “i wont b in trub cos like its nt my fault.”
But she then added ruefully: “i might have to sleepo at yours, this is too much to handle.”
Her furious stepdad Robert Bowles — a 45-year-old property company director — and mum Elfrid cut short the family’s trip to London after neighbours in Harrogate, North Yorks, phoned police the next morning.
The Sun told yesterday how the family faced a £15,000 bill for redecorating and replacing stolen TVs, DVD players and jewellery.
Holes were said to have been smashed in walls, bleach spilt and furniture wrecked after Camilla’s pals held a party — and more than 100 gatecrashers turned up. Cash was also nicked.
Camilla’s FIRST message to her chum showed she was in jokey mood hours after secretly handing over the key.
The public school pupil wrote to the pal, who was in touch with the partygoers: “how was my house? haha what happened? is everything a messs?”
She was told there was “bad news”. As the evening wore on Camilla became increasingly frustrated — and her messages more urgent.
As the youngster remained in the doghouse yesterday, her family was tightlipped.
Police confirmed they were hunting two men who chased away the last few partygoers — and who are feared to have then ransacked the house.
A spokesman said: “We are still trying to identify who was at the party.”
Did you ever do something as a teenager you instantly regretted it?
