The security fencing
has finally been lifted around a play area in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, which was fire-damaged in October of last year.
A fort within the town's Valley Gardens was targeted by arsonists in the autumn of 2011, but has now been re-opened by Harrogate Borough Council following months of repair work.
Three youths have been charged with damaging the popular site and have already appeared before the Magistrates' Court. It follows a similar incident in Bolton where arsonists targeted a school climbing frame.
Kian Clegg, from Knaresborough, was given the honour of cutting the ribbon to open the revamped play area. Kian was said to be so upset at the time of the fire that he asked his mum to "take the money out of the bank" to help fund the park's repair work.
The council helped to rebuild the play area following a £2,000 donation from Friends of the Valley Gardens and Menwith Hill's Community Heartbeat.
