Playground damaged at Delancey

Sunday 26 December 2021

Vandals have caused extensive damage to a children's playground at Delancey Park in St. Sampson's.

Equipment was vandalised and broken glass, nails and wood were left on the surface of the play park at the Bright Beginnings Children's Centre.

Police said last night that the criminal damage was caused between 16:00 on Friday 17 December and 08:00 on Monday 20 December. 

PC Ormrod, who is leading Police inquiries, said: "Not only has this incident rendered these items unusable by toddlers, who may not have toys and equipment of their own to play with at home. But had the damage not been observed prior to use by staff, it would have posed a clear risk of harm by shards of glass and nails scattered about the grounds that may have caused an injury."

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Police, referring to crime reference number OC21*9198, or PC 161 Ormrod on 222 222. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
