The destruction of 500 years of history earned two brothers a £500 fine last week. Bridgewater Magistrates' Court ordered the pair to pay the fine after they demolished a 16th century farmhouse in Somerset two days before it was to be evaluated for listed status by English Heritage.

The brothers had planned to build 16 homes on the site of Glebe Farmhouse.
