FOLKESTONE, England, April 13 (UPI) -- A British landlady said she has evicted two tenants who posted pictures of the house being trashed during wild parties on Facebook.

Carolyn Lorimer, 26, said the tenants, a couple in their early 20s, fled the Folkestone, England, home after hearing of the eviction and left her with thousands of dollars worth of damage to the house and unpaid bills for rent and utilities, the Daily Mail reported Monday.

"When I logged on to Facebook and saw the pictures I was absolutely shocked," Lorimer said. "I recognized it as my flat straight away and I couldn't believe what I was seeing -- people jumping on the furniture, dancing on the kitchen table, holes in the walls and smashed TVs. It looked like a slum."

The landlady said the damage included holes in the walls and the destruction of a recently installed carpet.

"It's the first flat I have ever let out and I never expected it to go wrong like this -- it's just been a total nightmare," she said.
