The mother of the teenage girl whose home was trashed after 800 people turned up to the birthday party she advertised on Facebook could be prosecuted, police said today.
Essex Police said they were considering bringing charges against former councillor Esther Hine for breaching the peace and for allowing underage drinking in her home.
Mrs Hine's semi-detached house was trashed after her daughter Sarah, 14, advertised her birthday party on Facebook and it was gatecrashed by hundreds of strangers who ripped doors off hinges, jumped through the loft floor, and scrawled on walls.
The trail of destruction began when what was supposed to be an early 15th birthday party for Sarah Hine's 30 closest friends turned into chaos as up to 800 people arrived with bottles of alcohol having seen the party advertised on social media sites

All of those underage drinkers should be charged.
Well there's ya problem.
Have this type of thing out in a pasture, just plow it under after the party, clean up done.
Cost, $2.00 worth of diesel for the tractor.
Country folk know how to hold parties :)
Detached from what?
With Facebook and texting... high school parties are usually not considered a “good” idea today (well, that is what I hear). Let your teen have a party and allow say twenty kids... soon turns out to be 100+. I know of one family that allowed their teen daughter to have a “small” get together. Long story short... they had to call the police and had damage in the house. It wasn’t from the kids who were invited.. but word gets out to other kids (even in other schools).
Semi-Detached means the house shares a wall with the house next door.
In other words an ugly red brick Victorian era row house common in the UK
Yeah, I’ve seen those.
Seems 100% attached to me but I guess they do their maths differently.
Last Friday Night:
“Detached from what?”
You're right, parents must be put wise to how quickly this information can spread to undesirable elements, so they can decide whether to have any party or none at all.
She’s gonna need a full scholarship and
A very wealthy groom. Prince Harry’s probably out of the picture .
There’s got to be two end houses on the row houses which are each semi-detached according to this goofy nomenclature.
Here we have just the one-shared-wall type which we call duplexes and omit any reference to degree of detachment.
No, they’d still be considered row houses according to the ‘rules’ - to be semi-detached, you must be one half of a pair.
The reason for the terminology is mostly social - a semi detached house is much more middle class than a row house, much more desirable.
There are also, often, important legal differences. Semi-detached homes generally have a separate title for each of the homes and the land they sit on, where row houses generally only have one title for the whole row. You can buy a single semi-detached house, you can’t generally buy a single row house.
A duplex, by the way, in the UK (and Australia) is when you have a two floor building with a separate ‘house’ on each floor.
OK, thanks for the info.
Did you see the picture of the $500,000 house? You can buy a better one around here for $50k. No joke. How do these people afford to live?
What an idiot!
Detached from what?
A semi, obviously.
It's $403K but you're right it's a dump. How did they fit 5 bedrooms in there? So, it was the neighbors' calls that got the cops there so why wasn't mama calling the cops? She ignored the school's warning so it seems she's more interested in being the daughter's friend instead of a parent. If that were my kid (no way would it have happened) but she'd be grounded off the computer and phone for the next year and would be learning carpentry skills.
Fortunately, my son told me about all those parties that started by well meaning parents and turned into Project X type events. Now.. my soon to be 13 year old asked me if I would allow her to have a party when she got into high school. My response, “H*ll no, no way, don’t ask again, don’t ask again ever and while we are on the subject.. you won’t be going to high school parties”.
In the county that I live in, the police have a party “jump out” squad. Seriously. They wait for phone tips about underage parties where alcohol could be involved and swarm the house. If one underage kid has alcohol on him or her, the parents are given a citation (essentially an arrest). Several parents have had this issued when one party goer “snuck” in a flask or hid a bottle of vodka (the new teen drink) under a jacket.
Sounds like a revenue scheme run by your disgruntled neighborhood snitch.
