VANDALISM to a park in Bude has led the town’s council to report the act to the police.

Bude-Stratton Town council has reported that vandalism to Bencoolen Play Park has been reported to Devon and Cornwall Police.

The council explained that among other things, a bench has been completely uprooted from its concrete foundations, requiring repairs and resetting.

A spokesperson from the council said: “Mindless vandalism has struck our play park once again.

“The actions of a few are ruining it for everyone. Ongoing vandalism not only damages our facilities but also takes away valuable resources that could be used to enhance our community.

“This incident has been reported to the police. If you have any information, please come forward to help us protect our community spaces.”
