British statue that is more than 200 years old was defaced with bright blue crayons

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin.

Some philosopher once said less is more, and that's especially true when it comes to kids and crayons near a famous statue. The 200-plus-year-old Sabrina statue, located at an historic property in England, was, um, decorated by kids equipped with bright-blue crayons. The unidentified artists were at the property for an Easter event. The crayons were part of the fun, until they weren't. A spokesman for the trust says it's been cleaned up.
