Extra patrols after vandals damage tables in play area

Have your say

Vandals have wrecked picnic tables in a play park in the Hope Valley.

Wooden boards were ripped off the top of the tables at a site off Castleton Road, Hope – leaving nails exposed.

They need to be removed and replaced.

PCSO Steven Rogers said: “There have been some issues with anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in the area and we will be increasing our patrols to find those responsible.

“It might seem harmless to the people causing the damage, but it affects many other people.”
