A council has appealed to residents and park users for help in tracking down vandals who caused more than £3,000 worth of damage at Long Eaton’s West Park in Derbyshire.
Erewash Borough Council said over last weekend (18 and 19 February), one lamp column was snapped in two and the top half stolen, two trees were broken beyond repair, damage was caused to another light and graffiti sprawled on buildings and signs.
The council is facing a bill of more than £3,000 to repair and replace items and to remove the graffiti.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
To say we are absolutely furious at this latest vandalism would be an understatement.
In fact it is very difficult to find words that adequately describe our anger and frustration at the mindless idiots who have caused this damage which is costing us – and our council tax payers - money.
