"Mindless vandalism" at Riverside Park

* Picnic tables were torn out of the ground and dumped in the bandstand at Riverside Park, says a councillor.

A member highlighted what he branded an act of “mindless, wanton vandalism” during Tuesday night’s meeting of the Town Council.
Cllr Tony Baker said it happened in Riverside Park where vandals had recently ripped two picnic tables out of the ground and thrown them on to the bandstand.
However, he said he believed whoever was responsible had been caught on CCTV in the process.
Town clerk J Gareth Thomas said the tables had been taken away for repair by the county council’s countryside services team and that when they were returned to the park the intention was to anchor them more firmly into the ground.
A number of councillors mentioned other instances of anti-social behaviour in the town and Mr Thomas said he would invite a police representative to attend the next council meeting.
He also told members that it could be time to start looking at replacing some of the town centre’s CCTV cameras as technology had moved on since they were first installed some years ago.
