A group of parents in Croydon are fighting to keep a play area open in the London Borough after it was announced that funding would be pulled.

Croydon PlayZone, which acted as a safe haven during the London riots in part due to its secure play area fencing, is set to lose its funding from local authorities in December.

According to the Croydon Guardian, parents and carers have signed a petition so far containing 350 signatures, which they hope to deliver to Croydon Council.

Parent Amechi Udo said: "It was one of the few businesses which re-opened very quickly after the fires and gave free access. Also crucially it's a safe space. Children can still come and play; parents can still come and talk."

Security fencing may also be required to protect children at a play area at the Rumney Recreation Ground in Cardiff, Wales, after a bike rider was photographed performing wheelies close by, walesonline.co.uk reported.
