Vandals who set fore to a swing at aCotmanhay park have caused £2,000worth of damage.

The vandals destroyed a basket swing and badly damaged the play surface at Cotmanhay playing fields, just off Denby Hall Road, overnight on Monday December 16.

Cllr Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s lead member for culture and leisure, said: “I know local residents will share our anger at this vandalism and we would urge anyone with information to contact the police as soon as possible.

“We have invested heavily in our play areas across the borough in the last few years so that young families have safe and up-to-date play equipment to enjoy. It is totally unacceptable that a mindless minority destroy and spoil these facilities and they should not be allowed to get away with it.”

Call police on 101 with information.
