A Bramley councillor has voiced his frustration after vandals again targeted the playground at Branley Park.
The zip wire seat at the playground has again been removed by vandals – and Councillor Kevin Ritchie (Lab, Bramley & Stanningley) has asked people to keep their eyes open for it.
He said: “Following a visit to Bramley Park this morning I was disappointed to see the zip wire seat has been removed again by vandals. If anybody finds it, last time it was stashed in the woods, please let me know.
“It will be repaired in the next couple of weeks, when a replacement is sourced. If you see any acts of vandalism in the Park please ring 999 immediately.”
Cllr Ritchie can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Councillor Ricthie’s concerns were echoed by people on social media.
One said: “It’s frustrating and disappointing that certain individuals take pleasure in vandalising apparatus in the playground. It is used by so many members of our community.
“There have been numerous instances of wheelie bins been stolen and set alight in the trees on the park and stones thrown at cars travelling along Broad Lane near The Beacon public house by young children and teenagers.
“I don’t think it’s any coincidence that this latest crime spree has happened over the school holidays and we can only hope that the increased level of crime reduces once the schools reopen next week.”
