Vandals target Onchan play area

Vandals have damaged new play equipment in Onchan park just a month after it was installed.

A bowl swing, castle and soft surfaces have all been damaged in attacks in the past few weeks.

The park was closed for a complete overhaul earlier this year and re opened in June after a £150,000 refit.

Commissioners discussed the vandals' attack at a board meeting on Monday.

Lead member for amenities June Kelly says the new equipment has proved very popular with children and criticised those responsible for spoiling the enjoyment of others.

It's not yet clear how much repairs will cost.

Police have increased patrols in the area.
