Play area fencing and security bollards will be installed around a recreation area in the village of Vale, Offenham, to stop people driving over it and cutting up its turf.

Tyre tracks have been spotted at the play area's football and cricket pitches, the Evesham Observer reports.

Offenham Parish Council has decided to erect 125m of security fencing and wooden security bollards to stop any further incidents, make the ground safe and ensure it is in peak condition for its users.

Diane Cox, Offenham Parish Council clerk, told the newspaper the new measures would be "good news for the village".

"This has been an extremely frustrating problem and damage has been done to both our football and cricket pitches. We are hoping this new fencing will prevent these unauthorised vehicles doing the same thing again," she said.
A grant of £2,770 from Wychavon District Council will help fund the work.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800415214-ADNFCR
