Security fencing is set to be installed at a £435,000 water park in Somerset as part of a range of measures to stop people using the site at night.

According to Bristol Evening Post, groups of people have been climbing over a stone wall at the back of the park, in Weston-super-Mare, gathering in the evening and disturbing local residents.

One person even pitched up a tent, the newspaper said.

Security fencing is one of the proposals being considered by Weston Town Council, in advance of stepping up security for next summer, when the water park will be at its most popular.

"The water park has been a huge success with visitors and residents since it opened. We have had some problems and complaints from neighbours," Malcolm Nicholson, a council clerk, told the newspaper.

"The fact that it is not a secure site means that on occasions, teenagers have got in there at night," he added.

Since its opening in July this year, the park has proved very popular. It contains fountains, jets, and an adventure play area.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800154977-ADNFCR
