A 31-year-old man has been arrested after a number of newly planted trees were damaged in Cardiff.
The man has been charged for causing criminal damage to the trees on Wellfield Road, Roath on June 28. The trees were placed alongside the road to help aid social distancing after the pavements were extended.
The Pentwyn man has been bailed with conditions not to enter Wellfield Road and is due to appear at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court on July 30.
Cardiff Council's leader called it a "distressing and depressing start to the week".
Huw Thomas said: "Although only temporary on Wellfield Road, we planned to re-plant these trees in areas of low canopy cover in Cardiff. So sad. And this comes on top of the tons of litter left at Roald Dahl Plass on Friday. What is wrong with some people?"
