Vandalism forces closure of Bridgwater park

MANSFIELD Park on the Hamp Estate in Bridgwater has been closed temporarily because of  vandalism.

A spokesperson for Sedgemoor District Council said: “We are saddened to have to do this but the safety surfacing has been ripped up under the roundabout and swings, meaning any child who falls could suffer an injury.

“The overnight vandalism has been reported to the police and we have a crime reference number of 5221160723 for anyone who might have witnessed the incident.

“We are hoping that repairs will take place next week prior to the summer holidays starting.”
