The Purple Orse of Uffington

An obscure article about an obscure act of vandalism becomes even more obscure:

Vandals have targeted the ancient Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire by spraying part of it purple.

Officers from Thames Valley Police were called to the 3,000-year-old chalk monument at about 2200 BST on Thursday.

They found the head and eye of the horse had been sprayed with purple paint. A banner that read "fathers 4 justice stop the secret family courts" was recovered from the scene.

New Fathers 4 Justice and Real Fathers for Justice both denied responsibility.

Yes indeed, there's a "New Fathers 4 Justice" and a "Real Fathers for Justice". Reminds me of something...
