FORGET the Easter bunny, it’s grinches that have visited Wokingham.
Overnight vandals has struck in a playground destroying activities that children would normally be playing with.
Firecrews were called to tackle the blaze at the Latimer Road playground, off Barkham Road.
The area has been taped off today and the damage can be clearly seen.
A rope bridge is charred and burnt, while a slide had scorch marks on it.
A slide has completely melted, leaving just charred plastic remains trailing to the ground.
Wokingham Town Council’s Cllr Peter Hornsby (Lib Dem, Emmbrook North) discovered the damage when he took his daughter to the park this morning.
“It was taped off, and there were broken glass and gas cylinders around,” he said.
“This is a playground used by a lot of children.
“It’s a shame they (the vandals) felt the need to do this sort of thing.”
