Toys belonging to two young girls were ruined by vandals yesterday afternoon in an incident on Carver Fields.
Crosspool mum Lucy Whittle Watkins was out with her three year-old and 20 month-old daughters. They temporarily left a tricycle and toy pram just inside one of the entrances to the fields while they went to sit on a bench.
They returned to find the tricycle ruined, with the saddle smashed, the guide pole snapped off and basket broken, leaving Lucy angry and her daughters very upset.
Lucy said: “I shouldn’t have left it unattended, although I’ve left things there before with no problem. I’ve a learned a sad lesson today.”
