Play equipment targeted in park

People are being urged to be vigilant after some play equipment was vandalised in a park in the Harborough district.

A swing was tampered with in August in the play area at Manor Field, Thurnby. It is suspected the incident may have been an attempted metal theft although this has not been confirmed.

The damaged swing was reported to the council by a parent whose child received minor injuries after playing on it.

Harborough District Council has carried out a full assessment – in addition to its weekly inspections – of all play equipment, under its remit, in the district.

No other issues were found in the district.

The council is urging park users, parish councils and neighbouring local authorities to be vigilant when it comes to play equipment, and is asking the public to report it immediately if they see anyone tampering with play equipment or find any damaged play equipment.

Shearsby's play equipment is inspected weekly, but please be on the lookout for anything untoward.
