Fire started at Brookside skate park

Arsonists stole wheelie bins and set fire to the contents next to the skate park on Saturday night.

No damage appears to have been done to any of the equipment but it doesn't bode well for the new play equipment that Telford & Wrekin are planning to install later this year.  There is already a lot of damage to the floor of the skate park caused by fires which will need to be repaired this year, taking up the entire annual maintenance budget of £1,000.  Hopefully this latest case of arson doesn't put the borough council off providing the extra play equipment in Brookside.

There is CCTV near the skate park which will hopefully help police identify those responsible.  If you have any information about the incident, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or give me the details anonymously.
