Vehicle naughty laddies wrecked (10)


I believe the answer is:


'wrecked' is the definition.

'vehicle naughty laddies' is the wordplay.
'vehicle' becomes 'van' (van is a kind of vehicle).
'naughty' indicates an anagram.
'laddies' is an anagram of 'dalised'.

(Another definition for vandalised that I've seen is " wantonly damaged".)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
