More than £11,000 has been raised towards a new children's play area in Droitwich after a suspected arson attack this week.

A JustGiving page was set up by people living in the area with the aim of raising £5,000 towards a new play area - but donations have poured in and they have smashed that target, with the total currently standing at £11,090.
A statement on the JustGiving page by the appeal coordinators says while the council has confirmed the park was insured, they hope the money raised will enable the play area to be rebuilt before the summer holidays - and potentially even make some improvements.
We've all been past it or used it with our children at some point. It's important to the local area and therefore important to us.
We need to raise as much as we can locally to help the local council replace and improve the park, hopefully with enough money raised it can be expedited so children can enjoy it this summer.
If there is any money left it can be used on any other areas requiring attention.
