The police in Húsavík investigated the damage caused by reckless off-road driving in the deserted northern part of the Vatnajökull glacier earlier this week. The crime was traced to three Italian tourists that received hefty fines for the act.

On Tuesday, Þórhallur Þorsteinsson, managing director of the Fljótsdalshérað Travel Company, posted pictures on Facebook of ugly signs of driving on Kverkfjallaleið and other roads, including in the sensitive Brúardalir area. Speaking to the press, Þórhallur said it was the worst he had seen in the 30 years he had been involved with off-roading in the highlands. 
 
Fréttablaðið reports that the police in Húsavík tracked down the alleged drivers in the tourism industry in Möðrudalur on the day of the discovery of the damage they caused. They have confessed after the tyres on one of their cars have given police suspicions. 
 
Chief Inspector Hreiðar Hreiðarsson is quoted as saying that the three had no legal recourse, and each faced a fine of up to 250,000 ISK.
