The play area at West Heath Park has been closed due to damage caused by apparent vandalism.

imagePhotos sent by a reader show that large portions of the playground’s soft safety surfacing appear to have been ripped up.

Birmingham City Council has previously had to repair the surface due to vandalism.

imageCllr Brett O’Reilly (Labour, Northfield) said: “The damage caused by mindless vandals at West Heath Park is nothing short of disgusting, and the cowards that have carried it out should be ashamed.

“West Heath Park is well used by local families, many of whom will now be forced to take their children elsewhere until repairs are undertaken. I would urge anyone with any information on the vandalism to call the police and report it.”

Anyone with any information can call West Midlands Police on 101
